Hear from Ashley, International Relations MA alumni

'For me, the decision to study at King’s ultimately came down to two factors: I could live in London and get to experience everything the city had to offer, and I could study within the Department of War Studies, a totally unique academic department with the exact focus and interdisciplinary approach I was looking for.

The number one thing King’s did to help prepare me for my career was to connect me to an amazing network of alumni who all love King’s and are so excited to help their fellow alumni with anything, professional or extra-curricular. This network is available not only within the UK, but extends to all over the world.'

Hear from Arturo, a Biochemistry BSc student

'I chose to study at King's as the community offered a lot. As a Houstonian, I’ve always loved a diverse and vibrant community. With its multitude of societies and very diverse student body, King’s had exactly what I was looking for. Now that I am a student at King’s, I do not regret my decision. My classes are engaging, I’m studying exactly what I want (all classes which are relevant to my interests and my degree), and I’m living in one of the most interesting cities in the world.

London is an amazing city with so much to offer. Whether you want an amazing nightlife, tons of culture, or incredible food from every corner of the world, you can find all of this in London. Choosing to travel abroad to study at university is an amazing experience and I would seriously consider it if you enjoy new experiences and different cultures.'

Hear from Anna, English Language & Literature BA alumni

'King's was a natural choice for me as I wanted to study in the UK at an internationally recognised institution. King’s has a terrific global reputation with world-renowned research, faculty, and alumni and has a large international student population. I really fell in love with King’s whilst touring universities and thought the campus was the best! You can’t beat having the Strand, the Maughan Library, Bush House, and The River Thames as your campus.

During my time at King's I was able take part in many internships at some great companies in the media industry. This as due to help from the King's Careers & Employability team and because I was already in London so could attend industry and networking events. I interned at magazines like NME and Glamour and publishing companies like Penguin Random House. By the time I graduated, I had built up a good amount of experience and felt very prepared for my job search.'

Hear from Hannah, Classical Art and Archaeology MA student

'I chose to study at King’s for a variety of reasons, these included the intercollegiate nature of my Classics course, the esteemed professors of the Classics Department, the central London location, and the wide variety of resources, museums, jobs, and opportunities that I have access to at King’s. I wanted a course that would be interdisciplinary, be small enough so I could connect with professors and other students, and yet have all the resources of a large research university – King’s was the absolute best choice for this.

My favorite part about living in London is always having somewhere new to explore, whether it’s a market, a fancy library, a museum, a street fair, a pretty neighborhood, or a high street you haven’t visited before. I love to walk everywhere I possibly can! There is so much good food, and so much to constantly see and soak in – with so many different boroughs, neighborhoods, and areas of London, it’s hard to get bored.'
