Strand, London WC2R 2LS UK
A university with a global reputation in its own right, Kings is also part of the University of London and its main campus is in the heart of London on the Strand. There are a wide variety of options here, from education to management and marketing via some excellent health and dentistry-related courses.
A warning though, Kings know that they are the best in what they do, so they expect the best students. If you have a good background, good English and a real desire to work alongside some of the best in their field, then Kings is for you. If money is an issue, relatively high fees and London living costs are going to be a factor here too.
To summarise, a world-class institution, in a world city. If you are up for that challenge, then Kings is for you!
