Overall Rating

So far I can tell that I'm absolutely not disappointed. It is the first time for me studying in another language than my mother tongue and therefore it's very difficult at some point. But I get great support from everyone (!) - classmates, friends, staff, lecturers etc.
This uni is very international, so I met people from all over the world who are my friends now. I like it, that it's not such a big university, so after a while you know who are the others studying and living there.
Some things could be improved, but in general I'm happy with my choice!

Student Union

There are good offers. Sadly, probably regarding the size of the university, there's so musically offer available.

From the city or the university?


I live in a double shared room. This room is much bigger than my first one (I moved during the term) and nicer in general. It's clean and it has a sink. The view is very nice, too (-> 4th floor) and the area were I live is beautiful, clean and super central (zone 1).

I only give 4 stars because it could be more looked after the bathrooms and toilets we share with the entire floor.

Uni Facilities

I think they are good. I didn't study at an university abroad before, so I can't compare, but by now I don't miss anything.
Except from a better ventilation in Asa Briggs

Course and Lecturers

The small class size and the enormous knowledge from our lecturers.

City Life

It's great! I mean it's London (UK)! Nothing else to say :-D

Job Prospects

We have some guest speakers and career fairs, but I didn't notice any work placement offers.

Student Support

It's really good, honestly. We can always contact our lecturers if we need something and we have tutorial weeks where we get personal feedback to our assessments.
The personal support is really good, too. There's always someone who can help you, either staff members or students like our student president e.g.
