    Hi Rene,

    Which residence do you live in and why did you choose to live there, assuming you did? What are important factors to consider in terms of accommodation?

    From what I can see on the website, it seems that they waste very little time before putting students on clinical placements; could you discuss this, and the nature of clinical placements in general at King's College?

    Could you also please discuss case-based teaching versus lectures, and their relative prevalence in the course? Apparently 50% of our time is meant for self-study; exactly what do they mean by this?

    Sorry for the bombardment with questions; I don't want to misunderstand anything.

    Hello,

    I chose to live in Great Dover Street Apartments (GDS) for my first year. You don't get much of a choice, they ask you to say which financial category you identify most with and then select one for you on this basis. It is quite a fair system though - if you are a medic then ideally you are living in Wolfson House or at GDS, because they are both very close to Guy's campus.

    Consider whether you don't mind sharing a bathroom with other people, locality and consider financial arrangements of course.

    From second year you will be undertaking clinical placements. The hospitals are brilliant - Guy's, King's and St. Thomas' are all world renowned. You will really enjoy them if you come here, we are a lot more clinical than most med schools.

    Self study is online learning using resources provided. Regardless of what you think, the truth is that you won't attend most of your lectures for various reasons. As a result, most of your learning will be independent - especially in years 1 & 2. It actually works out better this way for most people (including me), as whenever you have an issue, there are always a multitude of experts available to discuss things over with via email or in person.

    First couple of years consist of a lot of lectures on campus, but this is inescapable anywhere. It is very thorough and aided by dissections, which are a great privilege to be able to take part in.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    Rene LP Klay

    Hi reneranger13


    I have read from the GMC reports that the student satisfaction is quite low, and that the feedback for examinations, projects and clinical assessments is quite limited and often very late. How much truth is there to this statement?
    Is the faculty involved with students, and do they try to create a supportive environment for them?
    These are the only issues that worry me about King's College.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys!
    I received an inteview invite yesterday and was wondering if someone could answer some of my questions.

    How many stations are there? and how long is each station?
    How did you prepare for this interview?

    I had interviews at Exeter and York. If someone else was interviewed there, is it more relaxed or difficult?

    Thank you very much and congrats to the ones that already have offers!

    Hi @reneranger13

    I also heard that the bottom 10% get kicked off the course every year. Is this true?

    Thanks
