984.jpg The variety of modules offered by King’s allowed me to construct a degree that was interesting, academically challenging and which had real relevance to my specialty. King’s has a world-class reputation and this was certainly evident in the quality of the teaching and excellent study facilities. I found the teaching staff to be friendly and approachable and, importantly, peer group support was facilitated and encouraged.

Undertaking an MSc with King’s has been a very positive and rewarding experience which I would certainly recommend to any nurse who is keen for both personal and professional development.
