2 History reviews at King's College London (KCL)
History, BA Hons
Unfortunately I am leaving King's after first year. It was not the uni experience I expected. I came to uni looking to go to the pub loads, and go out with friends - at least in first year. But it has been the complete opposite. The amount of work I received was immense, not just with the reading which I expected, but endless amounts of long essays etc which did not count towards any grades whatsoever. I have personally found it very intense. That is not a representation for everyone but this is my experience. I have found the uni cohort to be largely unsocial, making it hard to make friends etc etc. Unfortunately coming here made my mental health plummet and as a result I am moving universities. The teaching is good and staff are helpful for the most part. For someone who thrives on an active social life, coming here was the wrong choice! For someone who is very work driven this is perfect, but for the classic British uni experience... I'm not so sure!
