Jivaan from Trinidad & Tobago shares his top reasons for studying at King’s.
Jivaan graduated from his LLB (Bachelor of Law) at King’s College London in 2010. He enjoyed his undergraduate studies at King’s so much that he decided to return to pursue his postgraduate studies at King’s as well (LLM, International Tax, 2014/15).
His top 5 reasons for studying at King’s are:
1) Outstanding support
King’s provides students with exceptional support. The staff are very friendly and would go out of their way to assist students.
2) World-class resources
The resources at King’s are second to none. The libraries and academics to which one has access facilitates learning.
3) International environment
King’s brings students from every corner of the planet under “one roof”. Making friends from different countries has been an enjoyable experience as I get benefit from understanding different cultures. Professionally, the global network developed at King’s cannot be overemphasised.
4) Extra-curricular activities
With a significant investment in sporting facilities, KCL ensures that students have a balance between studying and other activities. Through the “Be Active” programme, students are encouraged to participate in a range of sporting and fun activities from virtual boxing to dodge ball. I am looking forward to fencing next semester!
5) Graduate employability
King’s enjoys a prestigious reputation. Finding a job after completing my studies at KCL was made easier by all the support I received from the Careers services team. Employers regularly make presentations on campus.
