One aspect I enjoy most about History at King’s is the opportunity to study under leading academics, a situation you are frequently reminded of when you turn to your professor’s publications whilst engaging with the course.
I chose to study History at King’s for two key reasons. Firstly, the department is an incredibly respected one, ranking second in The Sunday Times University Guide in 2011. Such a reputation coupled with the exciting prospect of studying in the centre of London really swayed me.
However, since arriving at King’s, and having gained the knowledge I have now, I would point to a number of other strengths King’s holds. This year I founded the History Outreach Programme, an initiative which now sees King’s History students running seminars on a fortnightly basis at over ten schools around London. The creation of this programme would not have been possible if it weren’t for the encouragement and support of our Student’s Union and History Department. As a result of this experience, I would highlight King’s’ active involvement with London’s vast community as a great strength of the University. Such a connection very much relies upon the strength of the relationships which exist between academics, staff and students at King’s.
