During your first weeks at King’s, you will receive a lot of information and there will be key things that you need to do. Here’s the checklist of things you will need to take care of during your first weeks in London.
But don’t worry! As a new student, you will be enrolled in an induction programme at King’s and the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine, where you will:
- Meet fellow students from your programme of study
- Meet department staff / academics / personal tutor
And you will learn about:
- Optional modules selection
- Credit framework regulations
- First year teaching structure and assessment
- Your department/programme handbook
- Your responsibilities as students
- Personal tutor system
- Study Skills support
In addition, you can always rely on King’s College COMPASS Team, and on King’s College dedicated student services. The Compass team is committed to supporting and enhancing the learning and living experience of King’s students, and offer a ‘one stop shop’ support service for students, providing information, advice, and much more.
If you are an international student, you can find additional support here. King’s College hosts welcome and orientation events for international students at the start of term. For more information, visit the International Student’s Welcome and Orientation web page.
The Bioethics & Society programme is based at King’s College Strand Campus, in the heart of London, and close to the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, Somerset House and the Courtauld Institute of Art (next door) the Royal Courts of Justice, West End theatres, cinemas and shops, Covent Garden, where you will find markets, shops and theatres, Trafalgar Square, home to the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.
Some optional modules may be taught at the Waterloo Campus (10′ on foot from the Strand Campus, on the South Bank of the Thames), or at the Guy’s Campus (where King’s College School of Medicine is based, near London bridge).
If you’re looking for accommodation, you may want to check out King’s College opportunities in terms of residences and halls. Applications for accommodation are accepted form prospective students who have firmly accepted a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on an academic programme at the College and from current students who are progressing into a subsequent year of study.
