Student life in LONDON???Watch
My main concern is I don't really understand how people make friends, because there seems to be no sense of community (especially at Kings) and also there is no "union" where everyone goes out? I'm a massive lover of going out and I've been told it's mostly very work focused people or international students at kings who don't really want to go out anyway, I don't know if ill get on with people like this as I'm quite wild!!
Has anyone studied/studying in London or know people who do(especially kings!!) I feel like it seems very lonely, I'd love to know how people find the halls, night life, travel, costs, and friend making in London as I'm really really nervous about going to Uni there!!!
More about King's College London
I can feel your enthusiasm for studying in London! I love London too and at King's we're definitely in the heart of the city.
We do have a very active (and award-winning) students union at King's. Here's a link to KCLSU - http://www.kclsu.org/ where you can find out about all our 200+ student societies.
We also have a really informal video about student life on YouTube which might give you little more information - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eixZp...MZMj8&index=31
Hope this helps and feel free to ask us more questions!
but there's plenty of societies, unions, talking places etc.
There's far more UK students than intl's by a large margin (and tbh, I think intls usually are more extreme when it comes to enjoying themselves), and with a couple of thousand new students per year, I'm sure you'll find people to hang out with.
(also, "work focused"? )
also kcl students union is kinda crap
On a busy day in the students union you could drink every single drink being drunk and not get the slightest bit drunk but I think you would die from a caffeine/sugar rush.
