Hear from our students

I chose King’s primarily because of its renowned academic reputation as being one of the best institutions in the UK, as well as in the world.

Studying at King’s College London has given me an added advantage of helping me stand out in the increasingly competitive market for jobs, as it is one of the top colleges in terms of employability which is facilitated by its careers service, internship opportunities and connections with prospective employers.

Attracting lots of international students like me, King’s College London is very diverse, yet houses a convivial atmosphere. Furthermore, the wide range of societies ranging from academic-based to sports ones ensure there is something to suit most students' personal interests and also presents opportunities to take on activities alongside studies. Besides the prestige associated with studying at KCL, the staff has always been very approachable and the concept of each student having a personal tutor has helped resolve any issues without difficulty.

I stand testimony to the fact that if you have a dream and are willing to work hard towards it, all of King's conspires in helping you achieve it!

As did most of my fellow students, I chose King's for its exemplary body of work in creating and dissemination knowledge, a world-class faculty it can proudly boast of, excellent student support services and, of course, its location at the heart of London. Once I got there, I realised we at King's are more than a research university, we are the champions of community service, we create thought-leaders and change-makers, we have left a lasting global footprint ... and we do all of this silently, tirelessly.

I joined King's to be a scientist, King's kindled the leader and change-maker in me; come be part of my KIng's family, you never know what's lying await to be woken in you!

I always wanted to have the ability to create something of my own, with the skills to market my innovations. BSc Computer Science with Management at King's College London offered me just that opportunity!

The college has an amazing campus in the heart of London next to Somerset House, which facilitates access to the remarkable learning opportunities provided at King's.

It has been an exceptional experience to be a student at KCL. The support and inclusion from the university and its' union has played a pivotal role in my educational journey at the university. This started with me going to an event held by the Pakistani society which motivated me to get further involved, leading to me serving as the International Students’ Officer, and now becoming the first international Pakistani Vice President at the Kings College London Student Union.

As the current VP, I am looking forward to providing all upcoming international students the same opportunities and breaks, which I had and make sure that their time at King's is preeminent.

My experience studying BSc Pharmacology and Molecular Genetics at King’s as an international student was absolutely fantastic! King’s is fourth in the world for Pharmacology and one of the few universities to offer this combination. I wanted to study about drug development and genetic basis of diseases and this course offered just that. I had the opportunity to attend lectures from scientists who are at the forefront of their research which was intellectually enriching and inspiring.

Having lived in three different countries before coming to the UK, an international environment was a must. King’s College London gave me the best experience as I got to meet people from all over the world and there is a great diversity of nationalities. I have made lifelong friends who were my flatmates since day one and my course mates who made lectures all the more fun. The student societies are very active and they cater to everyone’s interests. I learnt salsa as part of the dance society which was great fun and gave me a break from the academic work. All the campuses are at the heart of London so it gave me a perfect chance to explore the city alongside studying. There is never a dull moment at university and this city is always bustling with life.

I will miss Guy’s campus, Guy’s bar and the countless evenings spent at the New Hunt’s Library which was a world of its own. King’s experience is definitely unique and one that I will cherish for life. King’s forever!
