Thoughts on PKP
Attending PKP was one of the best experiences of my life. I made long-lasting friends from all over the world and took classes from professors who were experts in their fields with engaged and interested students with a variety of opinions; for my Jane Austen class, I even got to see the handwritten manuscript of Sanditon that the King’s College Library had in its archives! I got to experience Cambridge life, from seeing Romeo + Juliet at Shakespeare in the Park to buying groceries at the open-air market. Although the coursework was very rigorous, my friends and I still had time to sit by the Cam at night and even try our hands at punting (hint: remember to take your punting pole with you when you duck under low bridges)! When I got an ear infection during the last two weeks of the program, the PKP staff was extremely accommodating and rushed to help me in any way they could: honestly, they were better at making arrangements for my schoolwork than my home university would have been, but that just goes to show what a high quality program PKP is. It truly stands heads and shoulders above the rest.
