I enjoy the fact the preclinical and clinical parts of the course are separate. However could be more patient contact in the first year. King's allow you to do a degree in a year so intercalate which has meant I could pursue interests in a specific subject. Assessment style is multiple choice questions which I personally struggle with due to them having more than one correct answer. However, there are also in course assessment which are more written style answers and the student selected components in which you do an essay. The lecturers are often involved in current research and are experts in their field.

My course at King’s College has a dual focus of developing Economic understanding and analytical tools as well as honing management skills in areas of leadership, marketing, finance and HRM.

In first year you are required to complete compulsory modules in accounting, sociology, mathematics, statistics, management and economics. In second year, you have the option to choose half of your modules and specialise in areas of marketing, finance, HRM and accounting as well as an interesting and contemporary module entitled Technology and Innovation which develops critical thinking and management applications. In third year, you have the option to complete a dissertation in your chosen area, as well as full choice of modules to further specialise in the areas mentioned above.

In order to be successful in this course you must have a solid grounding in mathematics, as well as a general idea of what area you wish to specialise in once completing your degree.

This course is broad enough to to prepare you for several career paths based around Economic understanding and mathematical application, including investment banking, accounting, management consultancy, marketing and human resource management.

There is also the option to go abroad in your second year at a number of institutions that King's enjoys a reciprocal exchange relationship with. I personally chose to complete a year abroad in California at UC Santa Cruz.

Medical Physiology is the study of the body and it's functions; it looks at how tissues and organs work, how physical laws and biochemical factors influence their function. For example, consider the vascular system. We would look into how the blood pressure is maintained in the arterioles which is influenced by the resistance, wall tension and diameter of the arterioles. Additionally, we consider what is going on at a cellular level; an increase in blood pressure is also caused by the endothelial cells (lining the artery walls) releasing Nitric Oxide via a specific mechanism. That's just one little aspect you would touch upon in this course as a little teaser! Of course, it gets more interesting when you look at hormone homeostasis and how hormones lead to a physiological response and what are the diseases associated with the different hormonal imbalance. If you like your three sciences, especially biology, you'll definitely enjoy this; be aware though that there is a lot of content but modules under this course are very intriguing and is a popular choice among students such as the'Endocrinology and Reproduction' module which is in the second year. Just to make it clear, in the 1st year you do a set of 7 modules with all other Biomedical sciences where you pretty much do a module related to each other's courses. 2nd and 3rd years, you have to do some compulsory modules, which are all physiology related, and you'll have the opition to choose modules from other courses till you reach the minimum number of credits you need to do for that year.

I am a very very happy to be embarking on a neuroscience degree at kings college London as Neuroscience has always been a passion of mine and kings is definitely the place to be. All first year bio medical sciences are required to take a common year- which exposes you to all aspects of the biomedical field. At first I was a bit apprehensive about this but I am so happy I went through with going to kings because it has definitely broadened my interest of the biomed world, and has helped me get a better grasp of the different aspects of neuroscience. All of the professors at kings have been really helpful and responsive with any questions I have. Kings also offers a lot of hands on learning and a surplus of resources to aid in studying for examinations.

Ok so first year is way too intense especially For those who have just left sixth from. With there being 400 of us I don't feel like we got the support we needed just in terms of being told what is expected of you. Furthermore you have MCQS for exams. The rest of your degree is assessed by essays but you have MCQS in first year why ?!? This gives you no preparation for the rest of your degree. Second year is better as you actually get to choose your modules as apposed to first year however for biomed I don't think there is enough variety. Also again not enough interesting 30 credit modules which leaves you picking 15 credits and having crazy amounts of exams. Also 30 credits require way more than 2 X 15 credits would. Also what is with the crazy number of courseworks that take forever to prepare for and are worth 2% and 5% I kid you not. Also the amount of content for anatomy is just a joke. Also not enough support in general at uni or career advice. They've taken do your own thing a bit to seriously.

The degree is not what I had expected it to be, I believed it would be more exciting and engaging but really it's a bunch of people who didn't get into International Relations at their top choices and then decided to apply for something different. Studying a language alongside the degree is pretty much useless, we aren't considered to be language students so we have a significant lower amount of contact time yet as we are considered a more "prestigious degree" somehow our Spanish/language level should be really high. I am currently on a year abroad and am not enjoying it all, I had no choice in where I studied or what I studied and sitting in a class studying a top degree at a top university all in another language where your peers are very intelligent and very interested in their degree, is daunting. I haven't improved my language and I feel like it's a waste of a year. I would recommend people taking European Politics instead if they're really interested by the whole EU political atmosphere and save themselves a year of sitting in a class looking stupid. The overall degree isn't that bad, I have enjoyed a few of my modules back at King's but it was all down to the lecturer and how exciting they led their module otherwise it was a bore. Also, King's is fairly disorganised.

The course is very interesting and varied in its contents. I have the possibility of getting to know texts from all over the world, while also learning a lot about the historical and cultural context which has produced them, which is very interesting and stimulating. There is definitely a lot of theory involved, and I'd say that we work more with that than with strict close reading, which I like because it places texts in a much broader context, involving politics, history etc. Doing Comparative Literature with Film means that I take most of the modules from the department of Comparative Literature, but I can also choose 2-3 modules per year from the Film department, which makes this degree even more varied while at the same time consistent. For instance, I have often found myself dealing with similar theoretical issues both in Literature and Film, which helped my understanding of them and allowed me to draw comparisons. My only problem is that the module selection from the department of comparative literature is pretty small, as is understandable coming from a pretty small department. Most of the modules offered, however, are very interesting, and the teaching in both department is consistently good. The assessment is mostly based on essays, for which we get a lot of guidance and help, and on some exams.

Overall I really love my degree. The topics are so interesting and relevant and I am constantly challenging my mind to understand new things about the world. My perspectives have grown so much and I am very thankful for this. All modules really bring something extra, and everything, no matter if it is history or economics, can be applied to the current political changes in the world, which makes it even better.My professors are experts on their topics and renowned around the world, which makes my course even more unique. We read their books and are able to ask them direct questions about the content. Whereas my first year was relatively focused on European and American politics, my second year is bringing me all over the world, through studying conflicts and relations between various actors, which has widened my scope even further.It is hard work, hundredths of pages of readings to do each week (sometimes not the most interesting readings…), essays so difficult that I feel like I will lose it sometimes, but I am learning so incredibly much that it is worth every minute of studying. A degree that I can recommend anyone who is willing to make the effort to ACTUALLY understand the world.

Comparative Literature at King's College is a course which not only fulfilled but also surpassed my expectations. It is the perfect degree for someone who loves literature, but does not wish to limit themselves to the stiff and stale curriculum of any given national literature, as traditional courses of eg. English Literature tend to do. Currently half-way through the degree, I can attest to the broad range, both cultural and geographical, of the texts we study. From classical Greek poetry to modern Turkish novels, rom the Caribbean to Papua New Guinean texts. Moreover, the subjects incorporate information from fields of history, politics, economics, anthropology and sociology, broadening your horisons in many directions, laying a foundation of highly transferable knowledge and analytical skills. The national diversity of students across the course adds a unique quality to it: it is hugely beneficial to study texts when your classmates can fill you in on details lost in translation, while the exchange of ideas gains a worldly level. It is a course which succeeded in adapting the traditional subject of literature to a modern realities of the world and of the job market.
