Is KCL good for teacher support?

I’m trying to decide unis to apply to, I am in first year (restarted the year to improve grades willingly, so I have been thinking ahead for when it is time to apply) I’m wanting to do a joint honours degree most likely in Geography and (Environmental science or something similar) I’m wondering if this is a good uni for work loads and teacher support, and not too overbearing and stressful. Can any current or previous students talk about their time here and thoughts?
KCL does not have a good reputation for the way it treats applicants - which suggests that its atttitude to students may be equally poor.

If you want a less stressful environment then look at Unis outside London :
Cardiff - https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/earth-environmental-sciences/courses/undergraduate/environmental-geography
York - https://www.york.ac.uk/environment/undergraduate/
Southampton - https://www.southampton.ac.uk/study/subjects/geography-environmental-science
Bangor - https://www.bangor.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/f840-physical-geography-and-oceanography-bsc-hons
Dundee - https://www.dundee.ac.uk/subjects/geography-environmental-science
etc

Honestly a tricky question. People seem really conflicted with the answer! I've spoken to people who really loved their course, but I've also seen posts from people who disliked it. Ultimately, I think it comes down to you and what you're looking for in the course.

I'd recommend you visit the uni on an open day and speak to current students in the course you're interested in to get a better idea of things.

Hope this helps! :smile:
