My name is Begum and I’m a second year undergraduate War Studies student. Where I come from (Turkey) has had a significant influence over my choice for this degree – the Ottoman Empire, the main focus of the majority of my history education, was bound in conflict and conquest for centuries. Contemporary Turkey, although not war bound, is immersed in Middle Eastern conflict, which is where my interest for International Relations has stemmed from.
I’ve been living in London for three years, which makes me (almost) qualified to give a piece of advice or two about living and studying in this amazing city. Good things are in abundance, so follow this blog to find out more about what King’s and London has to offer!
