    MA in Film Studies, and from California!

    What's the best way to secure private accommodation before we arrive? I have friends already going to King's who I'm hoping to live with, but is it difficult to sign a lease with a landlord if I'm not in the country yet? Is there any way to make signing process easier?

    Excited for Fall 13!

    I wanted to ask about employability after MSc as I am confused whether I should take a loan to fund my studies or not?.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have opted for MSc Physics.


    @olive ; KCL took approx 2-3 weeks and we have a percentage system here in India?
    How are you financing your studies?

    Does anyone know what our chances are for getting a place at student residences as a postgraduate? e.g. at The Refectory, Stamford Street Apartments, Intercollegiate Halls?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm interested in applying for the KCL course too- I have a 2:1 from Manchester in Politics and Modern History, but it was only a 63%. I've seen that King's tend to ask for 65%- would this mean an automatic rejection? It's a topic I'm incredibly interested in (taken trips to Berlin to learn more about Cold War security issues, I was a researcher at the European Parliament and there I specialized in researching defence), or should I cut my losses and apply somewhere else?

    KCL didn't ask me my percentage, all they saw was my degree certificate with the final classification.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm doing "Philosophy of Mental Disorder" at King's. I would love to get in contact with fellow philosophers heading to King's for postgraduate study this September.

    I currently live in Bristol and I have know idea whether I will move to London or commute. I would like to live there, but I'm worried it will be just too expensive. Thank you Socto for your informative post - if anyone else can provide information on affordable areas to live in London, please do so. I don't know where to start!

    Hi!
    I am coming to King's in the fall for a Masters in English: 1850-Present. I am an international student coming from America and would love to connect with anyone heading over in the fall. I am pretty nervous about housing. I am applying for student accommodation, but if any previous King's students have advice on how likely it will be to secure a place or could give info about easy alternatives in a private sector I would really appreciate it. Looking forward to meeting everyone

    For those not in UK, when are you planning to arrive in London?

    I'm thinking of around 8th till 12th Sep. Hopefully that provides sufficient time to look for housing should I still be homeless.
