Hello Everyone, I am currently waiting to hear back from all my applications, but I have been accepted into King's College Ma conversion degree in philosophy. I'd like to ask you a few questions regarding the experiences of those who attended King's: 1. When did you apply for other postgrad programs while at King's? I would like to go directly from King's Ma program into my next program without taking another year off. Since their program is only a year, I don't know how this is feasible (I am an American. So, this may just be a cultural misunderstanding of applications/semesters.) 2. Were you offered any type of funding? If not, did you find scholarships outside of the school? I wasn't offered any type of funding, but I don't believe this style of Ma offers funding. If you're from the UK, you may not have looked since the disparity of cost for UK students to outside of the UK is substantial. 3. If you were a conversion student, do you feel as though the program adequately prepared you for your future postgraduate goals in the broad scope of philosophy? How well did the program prepare you for your specialization in philosophy? 4. Did the school offer support for students who wish to publish some of their work? Is there a Ma in philosophy community in which students present papers, whether or not they met publishing standards? Thanks for your time!
Hey guys! I just got admissions from KCL's MA program in Terrorism, Security, and Society. The program is offered by the Department of War Studies, which I figured to be KCL's "flagship" department. Although I have some results coming up soon, I wanted to know how KCL and its War Studies department are received by international organizations. Terrorism is one of my primary research interests and I liked the fact that KCL offers a specialized program for counter-terrorism issues. As masters in the UK are only for a year, I thought the narrower the scope of the course, the better. On the other hand, what puts me off is KCL's international reputation and its alumni network within the IO community. This could be because I'm not from UK and I went to a university in the U.S., but I feel like KCL's reputation is not as great as other London-based schools such as UCL and LSE. Also, as my final career goal is to work for international organizations in the field of counter-terrorism, I wanted to know whether KCL has a solid alumni network within the IO community. If you guys have anything to share about this program or KCL's alumni network, please share with me! Thank you!
