We know that thinking about life after King’s can be daunting. You might be wondering ‘what do I do next?’, ‘how can I still get support?’ and ‘who will I speak to?’ These are all valid concerns for new graduates entering the professional world. The good news is that you can still take advantage of King’s services and facilities even after you have finished your studies through Forever King’s Edge.
