Making the city your own

There is this tote bag that took up residence in one of my old drawers – I think it was handed to me forever ago, throughout Freshers Week in my first year and the print on it says: LONDON IS MY CAMPUS. As cheesy as that may sound, it is also true! Sure, King’s is not a campus uni – it is located right in the heart centre of this buzzing and vibrant city, and honestly, I think that makes everything just so much more exciting! Let’s say you are on the look out for some good study spots, and of course the university offers you spaces like libraries and common rooms, but why not mix it up and really go out and explore London, find your new favourite café, for instance, that in one way or another you can call your own!

Andreea pics 3 July 2017The Global Internship programme started last year, summer of 2016 and it took place in three locations, Washington DC, Shanghai and Mumbai.

Tips from a final year student: what I wish I’d known earlier

Author: Anuthida

Two years ago I boarded my 13-hour flight from Singapore to London, pretty much clueless about what was in store for me at the other end of the world. The heady mix of moving to a different continent and making the leap to higher education was certainly daunting, but I eventually settled in well enough. As a seasoned pro (okay, that might be a gross exaggeration), here are some tips on navigating Uni life.

Being a student is not as easy as it sounds. However, the truth is, that what matters the most, is the person you become after you finish your studies, not only academically, but as a whole. Having the opportunity to study in one of the best universities in the world and live in one of the most amazing cities, one can grow in so many ways.

I will narrate my day as a postgraduate student at King’s College London from the first morning coffee to bed time:

Study spaces at King’s and in London

Anwar - Starbucks

Author:  Anwar

By the time I started my English degree at King’s, because I had taken some time out after finishing my A-Levels, it was almost two years since I had written an essay or taken an exam. It’s safe to say I was nervous. Two years felt like a long time out of formal education and I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to adjust again.

My last semester at King’s: looking back, looking ahead

Author: Anuthida

Three weeks into my last semester at King’s, I’ve found myself looking back at the past 2.5 years and marveling at how quickly it’s all gone by. In a few short months I’ll be graduating, moving back to Singapore and officially entering the workforce. In my moments of introspection, I’ve only begun to truly grasp the significance of the last couple years and recognise how they’ve shaped me.

Adapting to my new life

Author: Diana

Recuerdo lo emocionada que estaba al saber que iba a estudiar en King’s College London y que iba a vivir en Londres. Wao! Simplemente estaba sin palabras, y es que pensar en lo maravilloso que es esta ciudad, me llena de muchísima alegría. El proceso de adaptación a una nueva vida es como una aventura. Te tienes que adaptar a todo, y todo es nuevo, desde el lugar en donde vives y con quien vives, a tu escuela, incluyendo clases y compañeros, a tu nuevo lugar de trabajo, al medio de transporte y hasta a la diferente zona horaria. Parece mucho, y la realidad es que es mucho, pero el proceso no tiene que ser todo al mismo tiempo.

Making your dreams come true in London

Around three years ago when I was starting my third year of undergrad in the University of Texas Pan-American, I made my second study abroad program. This time I travelled to Spain. The program itself was fantastic, but after a month of studying in Salamanca, Spain, my friend and I decided to travel another month around Europe. We had the opportunity to go to Brussels, Norway, Italy, France, Poland, Ireland and we made a stop in London. Our experience in every country was very unique and amazing, but as soon as we arrived in London, I just felt in love with this incredible city. Continue reading
