king's college location

4 reasons why you'll love studying at King's College London: #4 Location, location, location!

So you've got an idea of the programmes on offer and the teaching staff, you've looked at the employment rates and research funding but want the last reason to convince you? We'll let London speak for herself. King's College London is certainly the most central university in London. Seriously, four of its five campuses have got nothing but the Thames in front of them. Strand Campus, for examples, hosts the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and is close to the House of Parliament, the Royal Court of Justice and Covent Garden. Or maybe you'd rather study Medicine at Guy's Campus, right next to the London Bridge and Guy's Hospital and a short walk from the Globe Theatre. King's College London also has a range of residences for the accommodation of its students, most of them very close to the campuses. Studying in such a location will allow you to enjoy everything the city has to offer: amazing libraries, theatres and museums, music halls and sports competitions, restaurants and bars... Also consider that you will very likely enter the workforce here, through a curricular internship or maybe a graduate scheme. Not many places in the world can offer better work opportunities than London. Biancamaria Fiore, King's College London student
