King's College London has been a sanctuary of knowledge and intellectual improvement. Student services have been very helpful and reactive when I needed them. Lecturers and assistants were very inspiring, and helpful as well. This university critically contributed to improving my thinking and writing abilities, and provided me with valuable skills and knowledge.
Really pleased with my experience at KCL. Would only recommend it to everyone holding an offer, it offers so much to every student, but I must say, you have to be looking to maximise the use of their services, because there are LOADS. Academics are top notch and the professors are extremely helpful. The careers service might leave a bit to be desired but outside of that, it was a smooth and fantastic experience.
The facilities at PF Apartments are excellent! The cost is 350 pounds a week and the water grid is fully covered. The location is superior, downstairs is a small park for morning exercise. The transportation is convenient, it is very close to Waterloo Station, and there are all kinds of supermarkets within 1 km. The service attitude of the front desk is also very good, and often send small gifts! On top of that, it's very, very safe!
I started King's online so my rating for facilities is in regards to their online portals and services. Honestly, although I have been studying remotely, King's has been amazing. The faculty is constantly trying to improve and make the best out of the situation that is difficult on all of us. The students are amazing, there is constant support from older students to us freshers. Truly honest, King's gives you amazing tools such as career advice, mentorship, societies (that are super welcoming), and excellent courses. You can choose to make the best of it.
I stopped my studies early because I was not satisfied with the quality. Now I've switched to another university and I've been very satisfied so far. I think I was tempted by the name "KCL", which in reality was not world-class. I took the distance course Master of Science "Advanced Cyber Security". I took two modules (security management and cryptography) My criticism points are: - Each module has 6 weeks, but practically only 5, since the last week is primarily where you prepare for the exam. For some modules this is definitely too short. - No practical exercises so far. - The teacher only has 1 hour a week for us. A further hour was temporarily granted on request. - The content is very old or does not correspond to the state of the art. For example, historical ciphers were taught for a week and later tested, which does not help me in my life. Many new topics were missing. I can not recommend the program. I paid as of now ~ 3000 EUR without relevant value for me.
I have degrees from three US schools and came to KCL for a Ph.D. This is by far the worst run school I have ever attended. As an organization, it is incompetent; they deliver a sub-standard educational experience. The staff goes on strike every year. The only positive is that it is a cheap and easy place to get a degree in London. If you want a top tier educational experience, go to LSE or a school in the US.
Horrible atmosphere on campus, communication from the uni to students is generally poor, union is next to useless. The course and teaching is however, very good. I guess that's what really counts, but everything else is grossly disappointing. Your money may be better spent elsewhere
KCL is the least professional institution that I have ever encountered and provided the worst educational experience of my life. The professors are not as engaged and do not provide as much time with students as they usually do at American universities. The educational services are nonexistent. If you are not a native English speaker, as a lot of the students are, there are no opportunities for writing or academic assistance as foreign students get in American universities. The buildings are poorly maintained. They do not allow you to review your papers or problem sets, denying you the opportunity to learn. Most of all, they strike and use the students as leverage. The administration is totally incompetent, failing on all aspects from tuition, they overcharged me multiple times, to taking forever to respond to emails. There is no customer service and they care more about bureaucratic processes than helping students.
King's College London is in every sense a prestigious place to be. Everywhere you walk around, you find the great legacy running through its veins. The study is quite good and some professor's teaching methods are absolutely fantastic. It is truly an international university and anybody studying here would be in awe of its strength, size and education. The institution is perfect in every sense, however, just needs to have a much stronger community environment, for which I have the conviction that it will achieve in the near future.
I did my distance masters here. King's shows very little interest in actually teaching. I felt like I had to know all the answers coming in & when mistakes were made there was NO opportunity to follow up to understand why. Essays with 700 word limit receive only feedback saying what else you should have written. Ask for guidance on improvement & you're sent on a wild goose chase of the poorly designed modules. I've only met one instructor who was genuinely helpful & interested in teaching. Everyone else defends their own position, making sure to not say anything that might come back to haunt them. Vague, intellectually dishonest and self-referencing is how I would best describe my interactions with the majority of the instructors. Also the only thing they teach you is what's going on at King's - so you don't get an actual full picture of the topic, they only focus on the research King's is interested in. 20k for an online masters is a ton, there is MUCH to be improved here.
Student societies here are often involved in issues such as racism and Islamophobia. If you didn't hear, the uni recently blocked left wing students' cards and those who were seen to a security threat when the Queen visited campus !!!! King's have also not revoked the degree they awarded to the Sultan of Brunei.... something to think about!!
Very bad on careers my sister went to UCL and imperial to study. My sister had advice from lecturers re her CV and possible career choices. At least at Imperial they actually had speakers come in to talk about career routes nothing lile that was offered at KCL. I only hope they've improved.
My mother was admitted to major trauma ward St Mary's hospital, Paddington 4 weeks ago. I came across a young nurse called CLOE NEVERSON, this nurse in my opinion should receive the Nobel prize. She is only a student nurse training through Kings college but she is superhuman. The care and attention my mother, my family and I received from Cloe was outstanding. Even when off duty, Cloe took time out to check in on, not only us, but all the other patients on the ward. This young nurse is by far the most professional, caring, understanding and competent human being I have experienced in my 51 years of life. She is going to be one of the NHS's greatest ambassador's for our health service. Well done Cloe. The O'Leary family.
