Why should I study in ECS?

Students in the School of Education, Communication & Society give their insight into life at King's, in the School and on their course.

Lily is a current English Language and Linguistics BA student in the School. Alongside her studies, Lily is learning animation in her spare time so she made this animation about the course and her time at King's.

Anna Shirstova

Anna is a current Social Sciences BA student in the School. In this video, Anna explores the importance of seminars on the course and talks about the diversity of her cohort, which creates thought-provoking discussion and debate in class.

Ken Besuijen

Ken is a current TESOL MA student in the School. He'll take you through his time in London so far – from working part-time, exploring the city, meeting new people and of course the course too.

Hi, I’m Samira and I study the BA Social Sciences course at King's. I have really enjoyed how interdisciplinary the course is in its nature in that you have the power to tailor assignments to your own interests, which I think is a unique selling point of our programme.

Being part of the Social Sciences programme feels like a tight knit community due to the course size and because of how friendly the students and staff are – we all know each other personally. We also have course community meetings twice a semester and this really helps build a strong rapport with others on the programme and to raise issues and thoughts collectively to shape the course in a positive way.

As for why I chose King’s, there are a number of reasons! Firstly, the range of societies and networks we have is great – we have over 330 so I guess you can say we’re spoilt for choice! I personally have engaged in a few of these societies and networks such as BAME in the City and the First-Generation Network and strongly advise prospective and incoming students to seize these opportunities and make the most of them whilst you're here!

The careers service at King’s is fantastic too, hosting an array of events which have been really beneficial for me. Overall, I have had a great experience at King’s and in my home faculty and am looking forward to more.
