(Student Profile)

Brian

986.jpg My place of work has a contract with King's, however, if given the choice I would have chosen to study at King's due to its outstanding reputation which I felt would enhance any future employment opportunities.
The lectures and level of support from the lecturers is second to none. I found the learning resources to be exceptional and was able to access a very wide range of research articles and books. This was further enhanced by the online resources. One of the modules, Evidence Based Decision Making, was the best I have ever done. When I speak to colleagues who are considering doing this module I always tell them that their knowledge of the research process will be boosted greatly if they do.
I also enjoyed networking with other students which has led to me doing some teaching at King's. My advice to anybody who is considering doing this course is, although there is a lot of hard work, you really feel as if you are learning something that will be very useful in your future career.
