My bachelor is as exciting as it is new (third year since it's creation only!).It allows students to study a broad range of disciplines, from (international) political theory to economics, as well as history and law. It starts out broad and then lets students progressively specialize, with a focus on a particular region in the last year. What I like about it is that in the first year, different modules (economics, history, IR theory) are constantly and explicitly drawing from each other and enriching each other.The teaching staff is engaged and knowledgeable, and endeavour to always provided the newest material available and foster debate by presenting different opinions for each topic.Finally, another positive aspect of the degree is it's multicultural student body, with people from France, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc. ... This diversity is invaluable in seminars, as it allows students to mutually challenge their cultural assumptions, and grow using others' experiences.Overall, International relations has so far been a highly stimulating and rewarding degree.

I think the contents could be improved as I feel the material covered was not too vast. Structure was good. Complexity was good as well, apart maybe from the fact that some exams were way more difficult than what the modules prepared you for. The teaching was good with just a few exceptions. Forms of assessments were good as well. I did really enjoyed it!

I really like the idea of the degree and that you have a whole year do try a number of humanities subjects before you specialise. It is also quite nice that you can freely attend modules at other University of London colleges, allowing you to create a very unique degree experiences and quliaifucation in the end. There is not even one student on my degree who will leave with the same subject combination. On the downside, the offered modules are extremely Eurocentric. The content and syllabus is often quite racist and there are not many less racist alternatives offered.Some lecturer welcomed feedback on their teaching but a lot did not. It was difficult to criticise the teaching experience and be heard. If you are white, you will be able to enjoy this degree but if you are not or a tiny bit conscious, run away, this degree is a nightmare. Furthermore, the admin team of the liberal arts department is the worst of the worst. Rude, no module allocation and incompetent.

I am only giving two starts because KCL has an excellent reputation and the access to material (e.g. library, ebooks etc) is outstanding.

The course content is very dense and requries time to absorb all the knowledege from the lectures. King’s college is a fantastic place to study and I enjoy to be at king’s. The staff are very supportive and helpful when you have an issue, they try to sort it for you at their very best. There are many learning resoures for students to help them do their best in the ecams.

Medicine is a challenging, but exhilirating and life-changing degree. Throughout the 5/6 years of study, you are taken on a fascinating journey inside the human body, learning about the complex interplay between biology, psychology and the environment around us and the effect this has on human health. The first 2 years of the course are termed the 'Pre-clinical years'. These 2 years are predominantly lecture-based and are focused on teaching you the basic sciences- physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, psychology. These 2 years are intended to prepare you for the latter 3 years of the course termed the 'Clinical' years, in which you are sent on placement to different hospitals. This gives ample opportunity for patient interaction as learning is focussed on diagnosing conditions and coming up with a management plan. Another great thing about medical school is that throughout the degree, a lot of time is invested into teaching communication skills. This is important as there is a greater expectation now on doctors to be empathetic and kind.

My BSc Neuroscience degree at King's College London has been a very challenging and enjoyable experience. The degree of difficulty increased from the first to the third year, with the first year studying modules which were not neuroscience specific and the last year studying the latest neuroscience research from original papers. One thing that could have been improved would have been to more evenly distribute the degree of complexity among the three years. Indeed, in the third year we 'jumped' into original research papers which can be hard to read, we had to present such papers in Journal Clubs, do posters presentations and we were assessed on such things.Although the third year has been very complex, I enjoyed it a lot, because the content of material I had to study was very exciting and required a lot of active thinking, spotting mistakes in the experiments we were reading, suggesting what could be improved, or suggesting new experiments.Overall I am very satisfied with my degree and I would definitely recommend it to new students!

Kings college London has been a rewarding and educational experience for me so far. The teachers have been extremely helpful but as an independent learner the lectures (although somewhat helpful) did not help me much, I felt as though they were just reviewing what the books had already explained. I still enjoyed asking questions after the lecture. As for asking questions during the lecture, there isn't much time and the classes are quite big, I have anxiety and sometimes it's hard to talk. The classrooms and facilities have been great too, although my fellow students I didn't get along with much. My particular department is quite competitive and I felt quite isolated most of the time. I encourage the physics department to help the students socialise with each other, as it would make it a better and enjoyable learning place. I understand that there are extra curricular activities but I think it would be good for the students to socialise with the people they see everyday. For my subject most students are either quite arrogant and standoffish or shy. Especially the international students whom I would have liked to socialise with more, however living at home meant that I could only have time for lectures and most people just went. We do have a society but again people did not attend it and only went to the trips. I personally had mitigating circumstances this year so do not want that to be a part of this statement, I'm speaking apart from those situations. I think the socialisation needs improving in competitive subjects perhaps by doing fun group activities.

Modern medicines are very powerful and have a great potential for relieving suffering and curing disease, but also for misuse and inducing dangerous side effects. The pharmacist is the focus for all strands of knowledge which support the rational and safe use of medicines. This is reflected in the professional aspects of pharmacy which have a commitment to people as patients or as clients and to their well-being. Practising pharmacists are part of the wider healthcare team along with doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dieticians and others.The MPharm (Hons) degree consists of four years full-time study, followed by pre-registration training spanning a year supervised by a professional pharmacist. The pre-registration year placement can be in a hospital, community or in an industry environment. After the pre-registration year, an additional exam set by the GPhC must be taken and passed in order to be accepted for registration as a qualified pharmacist.

Bradford University offer a 5-year sandwich course. Instead of completing the pre-registration placement in a year, it is split up into two periods of 6 months. These two periods are integrated into the normal four year course as part of the third and fifth year of the MPharm degree. These types of courses can give a pharmacy student the experience of two different fields of pharmacy.

Children's nursing is quite a demanding course but has been so interesting. This has mainly been due to 50% of our time spent in university in lectures and the other 50% at our clinical placements in hospital.They are long hours but the hospitals have been a great learning experience with so many different diagnosis and medications being used all the time. You interact with not only patients and other nurses but other medical teams such as doctors, radiographiers, pharmacy, ultra sound and so much more. It has been very demanding but also worthwhile and have loved everything I've done.

There were up and downs throughout my three year degree at Kings. Kings is known for its excellent academic teaching, hence I choose to study there. However it also has poor student satisfaction, which came across in several ways. During the whole of second year, the timetable was messed up and we ended up not knowing what our schedule was until a day or two before, which doesn't help if people have kids to look after or part time jobs to do etc. Despite this, the quality of teaching has been excellent, and the practicals and prosections were my highlights. The staff themselves are all well respected experts in their fields and they are all very passionate in teaching us their knowledge.
