Student Profile(s)

Marina Romani

A recent student in the MA in Comparative Literature was Marina Romani from Italy.

Marina writes: ‘When applying for postgraduate programmes in the UK, King's College London was my first choice. The multidisciplinary approach is surely one of the strengths of Comparative Literature. I am enthusiastic about every aspect of King's: our department is small and friendly, and everybody is willing to give you a hand; the lecturers are inspiring and highly competent; our classes are stimulating and well-organised. It's challenging and rewarding to be a student here. One of the many distinctive aspects of King's is its location in London. You can't imagine my joy when I discovered that I could walk from Covent Garden to go to my classes at the Strand campus!’
