A great university with excellent teaching. Also has a good network system for different career choices too as the lecturers and professors are all experts in their field and welcome students for placements and projects.

The library is really amazing. During the year I love to spend my time there. There are lots of seats. There is also a café in the basement, a really nice place to catch up with course mates.

BSc (Hons) Geography
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

Overall, in first year the structure consists of half BA subjects and half BSc subjects which are compulsory. This, alongside many other students were thrown as I did not enjoy BA subjects and therefore found it very hard to engage. However when moving into second year you are able to specialise and therefore take which ever module you would like.

MSci (Hons) Biochemistry
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

First year is a common year one, where modules are broad and so useful if you haven't quite made up your mind about what bioscience to do- it is easy to switch from say neuroscience to pharmacology to biochemistry at the end of the year. The only issue is that because it is a common year one, there are about 500 people in every lecture which at the beginning of the year can be daunting when trying to make friends. Second year is more specialised, and much better and I found it more enjoyable. Third year is much more complex but more interesting.

BA (Hons) Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts allows me to study a range of different subjects which is perfect considering I like a lot of things and it means I will have a broad range of knowledge at the end of my degree. So far I have been allowed to explore completely new subjects like film and classics, as well as focusing on philosophy as my major.

Course module review - Mathematical Finance II: Continuous Time, 30/01/2018

Mathematical Finance II: Continuous Time
1.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
1.0 / 1 review

Nothing is clear. There are not enough details of solving some questions or proofs. Really briefly discuss intense topics. Unlike most KCL math lecturers, he doesn't write notes for students when he gives the lecture. Since he thinks there is no meaning to do so. No printed lecture note. The teaching method is" talking to himself", but it does not help students to understand the math.  As a result,  it is very difficult to follow. I am gonna fail.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

By far the best class ive ever taken. Eugenio is an incredible teacher - he broke down every single week into the core elements and was incredibly helpful, making sure that everyone was up to speed with what was going on. All the topics were totally new, but i felt very confident with the needed knowledge for the exams and essays. The reading list was comprehensive, the seminars friendly and useful and the content itself very interesting. Especially so were the weeks on applying IR theories to current events, and also super interesting were the weeks on nuclear weapons/WMD.
