The Bridging Program for January-intake students kicked off on January 4, 2017. The orientation is a week-long welcoming session to help new students feel at home at King’s and for some, to a new country. Students from Brazil, China, India, Austria, France, Colombia, and Canada are attending the Bridging Program throughout the week. Almost 100 students are starting new programs at King’s this term.
The Bridging Program provides information regarding King’s and Western, student cards, bank accounts, student services, and much more.
Mayank Mangal from India, who is taking a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Organizational Studies says, “it’s been just a few days since I have arrived in London. The climate is so cold; however, I like the city. I really like King’s. I have visited the library, and it was good. It is a really nice campus and I am excited about being here.” In addition, Xiaosi Huang from China and Moreny Maluka from London say they are excited about King’s and what it has to offer. They both report that the orientation program has been very helpful thus far as they transition to studying at King’s.
In addition to the week-long orientation, Frost Week runs on campus from Monday, January 9th until Friday, January 14th. The King’s University College Students’ Council organizes Frost Week to engage with new students, while also reminding current students of the activities going on throughout the new academic term.
