When choosing a graduate degree programme, I faced a conundrum. I wanted to build upon my background in journalism. But I didn’t just want to stick with the familiar; I hoped to go deeper into the dynamics and technologies of our increasingly digital world. However, finding a programme offering the right balance of technical skills, theory and real-world experience proved a trying task.
At many universities, such a programme simply did not exist. Of those I could find, some were too limited in focus, others too theory-heavy. None seemed the right fit. Then I found the Digital Culture and Society M.A. programme at King’s College London. King’s sits at the forefront of digital scholarship, and with the breadth of courses it offers I could tailor the programme to my exact research interests.
Receiving the International Graduate Scholarship just cemented my certainty that I had found the right place. The funding allows me the chance to focus on my education and the sheer experience of living in London. Once I arrived, King’s only exceeded my expectations. I still can’t believe that I am studying in the heart of London, that I can look out my residence hall window and see the Tower Bridge. I attend lectures given by leading practitioners in digital industries and take field trips to the British Library. The Digital Culture and Society programme is giving me an experience I couldn’t find anywhere else.
"The MA programme and the course staff offer a supportive but challenging environment for learning. The course lecturers incredibly helpful and I would strongly encourage every student to participate in is the internship programme."
