Read what our graduates have to say about how their time at King’s helped them get to where they are today.
"King's small class sizes, accessible professors and the collegiality of staff and students fostered open debate, critical thinking and understanding about political history, decision making, and distilling current events – skills I use every day."Joanne McNamara, Deputy Chief of Staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper
"My years at King's were a blessing beyond description. The smaller school atmosphere, combined with the remarkable faculty, gave me an advantage as I moved forward in life and in business. Being a King's graduate is more than receiving a degree, it is a credential."John Anderson, Founder and CEO of Canada Steel
"I will invariably remember my time at King's fondly, particularly the terrific faculty and opportunities to work with them, a carefully designed Political Science program that stimulates critical thinking, and the tight-knit community – a combination that could not have prepared me better for a master's degree and my current work."Amy Wood, MA Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, University of Waterloo
"I've always felt a level of support and friendship with the faculty, staff and students at King's that is unparalleled at other institutions. Every time I’m back in London I visit and am always welcomed with open arms as a member of the King’s family.”Sarah Watson, Manager of Executive Projects, Free the Children
