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!
Unable to make it to our upcoming open days? Not to worry! Our #Kingslive livestreams will transport you there!

The final days are here. Today I finished and submitted my dissertation. How happy am I? I am ecstatic, but in need of sleep, sleep, and sleep. These past three months have been hectic with work, stress and getting into the idea that I will graduate. How was I able to cope with this semester? Here are my tricks to help you with.
Firstly, it is important to make yourself a timetable. A kind of daily routine in order to get you going (especially if you only happen to have 6 hours of class per week). Therefore, every day I told myself I would spend 4 hours min at the library, either from 9:00 am until 13:00pm, or during the evenings (And what better place to study than good, beautiful old Maughan?). I seriously think I have never adored a library more than this one, and trust me I visited several: from Senate House, to UCLs, to Waterloo’s and Guy’s. Continue reading →
The student body at King’s is extremely diverse, culturally and age-wise, which creates the incredibly eclectic and international quality we are lucky to have. However, at undergraduate level, where the majority of students are 18, it can be a bit daunting to start a degree at an older age. This is something I know I was worried about when I started at King’s this year at the age of 20. Continue reading →
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:
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.
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.
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 →
When I was applying for undergraduate programmes, something that really attracted me to King’s was the emphasis it placed on the study abroad programme it offers. I know, I know – being from Singapore, wasn’t attending university overseas already studying abroad? Indeed it is, but who wouldn’t jump at the chance to experience living and studying in two vastly different cities? Continue reading →
As the year has come to an end, everyone gets overexcited to dash all that happened in 2016, forget about it, bury it and pretend it never happened. Now people start talking about their new year resolutions, that normally sound something like, “I’ll start that diet, go to the gym every day and really focus on my studies.” Continue reading →
