Overall Experience
I wouldn't change my experience for the world. It is a cliche statement, but it is so true. I loved all of my experience. While the start of my program sucked because Arcadia seemed unorganized, the second that I moved into my dorm, everything was great. I learned to be more independent and more outgoing. The experience real... - Austin College View Entire Review

It was a great experience and a much needed break from Wellesley! I met so many interesting people... it really made me aware of how people perceive me as an American as well. Personally, I think it made me even more mature and much more calm. Hopefully, I can keep that when I go back to Wellesley. I also studied at King's t... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

It was an amazing experience and I would go back in a heartbeat. However, I will not remember my time in London because of King's College by any means. KCL will be a footnote in the story of my time abroad. My time was made memorable because of the people I met, the traveling i did, and the time I spent getting to know London an... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I use to think that Study Abroad was nice but not necessary. I thought it was a waist of money. I WAS WRONG. you should definitely do it. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review

I grew up so much because I was put in the most independent situation of my life. I learned more responsibility and also learned to try so many new things and enter into new experiences. Granted, there were problems with my academic experience and the system was hard to figure out, but every single other part of my time in Londo... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review
I learned so much about language, culture, dialects, etc. It was very helpful to my research interests in English literature. Just because it's English doesn't mean you won't learn anything about language! I hope to return to the UK for a masters. I had an absolutely amazing experience and I highly recommend going to London ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

It was a great experience. I met a lot of people, learned a lot of different things about the culture and myself, and had a blast! - Spelman College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile overall, because I made some very close friends both British and American (and French). I figured out my identity more and what I want to do in life, and I gained a whole new dimension to my sense of aesthetics. It also helped me to be more confident when I went abroad again to France. - Barnard College View Entire Review

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 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.

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.
