Margarita, a student at the International Pre-Masters Programme at King's College London from Moscow (Russia)
Currently enrolled in the MA program Cultural and Creative Industries (Cultural and creative industries, master of arts) at King's College London (king's College London).
I really like my new friends and the training program itself – I didn't expect her to be so challenging and I learned so many new things! I am very grateful to all the teachers.
Why I chose King's College? First- because of his reputation, and secondly – due to the fact that it is located in the heart of London – one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Also I was attracted by the content of the programme and offer training modules.
Lectures on the theory of culture and social studies - great. Independent learning has become for me a completely new experience. This is very different from what I used to study in Russia, so the most difficult was to change the way of thinking.
I didn't expect that my knowledge of academic English can be improved so. My spoken English was at a high level, and my skills in writing and reading – because I had to read a lot of academic articles has improved significantly.
As additional module, I chose Business Management, which I really liked and was very useful for me since my first education related to jurisprudence. I learned a lot. It was very difficult, but I learned to work with the academic materials, worked in the library and at the end of the exam, wrote about what a year ago had no idea. The diversity of the received information is simply amazing and the teachers are strict but fair.
In this program perfectly blends theory and practice. Lovely people, excellent scientific research base and, of course, the location... I love London! It excites, energizes all around so busy, and that's great, it stimulates you. The College is located right in the center, so there is always something to do in your free time, visit museums, stroll through Hyde Park, to ride a bike. I watched a lot of musicals with a very special atmosphere.
I recommend this program to anyone who wants to get acquainted with the British education system and to improve English language and study skills.
