Why did you choose this school?
King’s College London (KCL) is the school with the best social science department in London, and is ranked just behind Oxford and Cambridge University. It is located at the heart of London, and is filled with all varieties of internship opportunities. It is less theoretical than London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and the atmosphere in KCL is much more alive than any other prestigious Universities in London.
What is your favorite thing about your school?
PPE is located at Strand Campus, the oldest and the most marvelous campus out of all four King’s campuses. It is reconstructed from a classical castle beside the well-known Thames River, so people can view the Big Ben and the London Eye clearly. The libraries open 24hrs and are equipped with new facilities.
What is the best memory studying at your college?
During the winter, there will be an ice-skating field right next to the campus I’m studying at. My friends and I usually go skating every once in a while, and have hot chocolate (sometimes hot wine) afterwards.
Do you think it’s worth it?
For me personally, yes. Studying in KCL provides me with excellent learning experiences and an exciting social life. I enjoy the weekly discussions which have given me plenty of insights that I’ve never thought of before. The cultural diversity of KCL has also guided me to understand more cultures and to perceive issues from different perspectives. Moreover, since KCL is at the heart of central London, the night life, including bars and clubs, never ends. KCL even holds parties at nightclubs and cruises for students. Therefore, if you are seeking a college experience in which you can immerse yourself into an in depth learning process, and at the same time enjoy yourself to the utmost: KCL is your choice.
