Kristina Urosova from Russia, is studying Computer Science at King's College, London
How did Kings help you get here?
Kings is great in terms of supporting university applications. Your university advisor will look at your application with you and help you establish your best points, to include what the universities will find interesting about you. They understand what the universities want from you, and also what universities will be best for you.
What’s it like now you’re at university?
It is really great. Sometimes lectures are quite complicated, and sometimes it’s hard to study in English, but I think I’m good at Computer Science and Maths.
All my lecturers are scientists, and they do research. Some of them have founded laws and theories, and it’s strange when I realise that these people are teaching me!
What are your plans for after university?
I have a lot of ideas! My husband and most of my friends are software developers and work in different companies in London – a lot in London banks, so for my career, I’d like to do that too. I have big ambitions!
Would you recommend Kings to other students who are interested in going to university in the UK?
I think it is an experience of a lifetime, and would be the best experience you could ever wish for. If I’d gone to uni without having done my Kings course, I wouldn’t have been so successful. Kings gives you not only the experience of studying, its much broader than that.
