Overall Experience
Overall, I think it was definitely a worthwhile experience. London is a fantastic city for college students. A student - Wellesley College
I learned how to spend time by myself without feeling lonely, how to navigate a city, and how to attend classes that I'm not used to. I'm glad I did it, but I wouldn't recommend this program or even London in general. A student - Middlebury College

I learned to be independent. Katherine E K - Wellesley College
I learned to be more independent and how to navigate a city. I learned how to cook my own meals, and how to help build community through cooking. A student - Wellesley College
Meeting international people and experiencing different cultures. A student - Wellesley College
It was worth it and I learned a lot but I wish I had done a program, rather than direct enrolment in a university, where there was much less of a support system and the housing situation was not ideal A student - Middlebury College
Independence, confidence in navigating and living in a large city, amazing international exposure and travel. Definitely worthwhile A student - Middlebury College
My study abroad experience was more than worthwhile. I grew up a lot, learning how to take care of myself in simple and challenging circumstances. My time abroad wasn't easy and it wasn't always fun. There were times when traveling was more difficult than it was enjoyable, but it was always a valuable experience. I learned above... A student - Wellesley College
I learned a lot about being on my own in a big city. I loved London, it is now one of my favorite cities. Although classes did not meet as often as they do at Middlebury, I had a lot of free time to enjoy myself abroad and I really got to know London well. kaiblee - Middlebury College
I discovered the city and people. It was definitely worthwhile. A student - Middlebury College

Broadened my cultural horizons. Very worthwhile, grew as a person. A student - Cornell University

It was definitely worthwhile. I'd never been out of the US before and always wanted to go abroad. That alone makes the experience worthwhile. I gained a better understanding of not only English culture, which is useful to my major, but also a better understanding of Europe in general. A student - Wellesley College
Learned a sense of independence in a new city - confidence to ask for help when I need it. Gained ability to speak with people from an international background emily.harris.547 - Barnard College
I made incredible, life-long friendships, learned about myself and my greater place in the world, and was able to travel to fourteen different countries during my time abroad. A student - Middlebury College

yes A student - Wellesley College
02/24/2014 Independence
It was incredibly worthwhile, I feel I became much more independent and got a greater view of world cultures. I loved the traveling component. Danielle C - Middlebury College
It was very worthwhile. I learned how much to appreciate the education I receive at my university at home and I also was exposed to so many different cultures and learned how to live independently in another country which will be of use for the rest of my life. A student - Barnard College
Great to understand other cultures because you find out what is really important about yours and what you like about it. Jonathan B - Middlebury College
This semester helped me to re-access the importance of a balanced life. A student - Wellesley College
Just living abroad was great. The Wellesley community, while great, can feel so small sometimes, and it was absolutely fantastic to live in a big city. I never realized before I went abroad how much I needed it and I feel like I've gotten so much more independent from the experience. A student - Wellesley College
Deeper understandings of cultural divisions A student - Middlebury College
09/21/2012 Amazing
Yes bmcpeek - Cornell University
A completely different view of how education works, and how people work. Completely worthwhile A student - Middlebury College
Learned how to live in a city by myself. Learned how to navigate random European countries without a map or any knowledge of the local language. Learned tons of British slang. I dunno, I learned a lot. Amazing trip A student - Brandeis University


King’s College London is one of the top 30 universities in the world (2011/2012 QS international world rankings), the Sunday Times 'University of the Year 2010/11' and the fourth oldest in England. A research-led university based in the heart of London, it has more than 24,000 students (of whom nearly 10,000 are graduate students) from 150 countries and more than 6,100 employees.
King’s has an outstanding reputation for providing world-class teaching and cutting-edge research. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise for British universities, 23 departments were ranked in the top quartile of British universities; over half of our academic staff work in departments that are in the top 10 per cent in the UK in their field and can thus be classed as world leading. The College is in the top seven UK universities for research earnings and has an overall annual income of nearly £525 million.
King’s has a particularly distinguished reputation in the humanities, law, the sciences (including a wide range of health areas such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing and dentistry) and social sciences including international affairs. It has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar. It is the largest centre for the education of healthcare professionals in Europe; no university has more Medical Research Council Centres.
