Hamza, an International Foundation Programme (Mathematics and Physics) student from Pakistan, talks about his experiences at King's.
“Choosing a university to study at is always a difficult choice to make. However, for me the choice of studying at King’s College London was one that came naturally. Of all the various factors that influenced my decision, 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.”
Aditi Nadkarni, India, Economics and Management BSc
“Having completed immense background research before applying for Biomedical Engineering at King’s, I knew I was in for a life changing experience when I received my acceptance letter. Not only did the teaching quality for all my modules exceed my already high expectations, but even beyond my degree, being a King’s student allowed me many distinct opportunities for academic and personal growth.”
