What's it like as a place to live? London. To live in London I would say is something EVERYONE has to do in their lifetime. Luckily enough I got this opportunity due to the course I study! London is a home away from home, its alive, vibe-y − and every corner you turn, you don't know if it's going to be a street old or new, celebs walking by, the latest E4 show being filmed or a carnival on. I love living here because it's the best of both words. It's tranquil and alive.
How's the student accommodation? Too expensive for me. And I wasn't even given the option as it was filled before I even applied. It is posh around here so I find it hard to fit in and find a place to live without bankrupting myself and my family in the process.
What's the student population like? Very international, which I love because I grew up overseas . Yet sadly still divided from business posh to urban normal (that's one way to describe it). I do love it here and my group of friends is great but I don't think I would be as happy in my multi-cultural mixed uni if I were at some other unis, just due to the huge divide between the rich and others.
How do students and locals get on? Love the London vibe and annoying tourists in the way! I think if you're willing to relax and experience London as it comes towards you, you will love it. However some people complain and pick out the little irrelevant parts, so they fail to notice the atmosphere of the mixed-ness of London. I find I get along here because I love the busy-ness and I know how to act and not to offend people in certain areas. Yes Londoners night not be as easily found or friendly in certain places, but this is a capital city, like any other, and like all of them, people need to be savvy!
What's it like as a place to study? Love mine. But wish there was more for us to do and be involved in as we have core things but not a lot of optional things, like for example the photograph course. Or things to do outside of uni as we have a 5 MONTH summer and I feel that we could easily have more classes or just reading lists or something. I love my course and area of interest and I just would love more please!!
What are the teaching staff like? They are great but outside of the courses they don't have many extra things they bring. I do appreciate our lecturers give us one-on-one time when essays or scripts are due, but they are always too late and coincide usually the week before the deadline which isn't helpful!
What are student societies like? Hard to join in if you're not popular or drinking or going out every week. The club night we started was really successful. Hopefully this year more social things will be started. Club nights are good, but only for a certain group of people. The garden parties, welcome nights, quiz's etc are always loved though!
What's a typical night out? Movies! (Cheapest one in Leicester Square). Or the pub with the group!
And how much does it cost? Bring a £20 with you if you want to eat and drink. I'm not a clubber. But if you were, £20 gets you IN somewhere.
How can you get home safely? Night bus with a friend or the underground. But always have your wits about you, and if possible travel home with someone; or let someone know when your leaving and text them when you're safely home.
Is it an expensive place to live? I didn't get a student loan as my parents didn't want me to get into debt. Unless you are rich or have rich parents it's hard to live a bit, due to all your money goes towards food and travel. And if you don't have a scholarship it's very expensive here. Obviously there are deals for food, and travel etc. also London is just an expensive city and people need to realise this and not come in without realising this, or it will be a massive shock.
Average price of a pint? £3!!! Maybe more in some fancy places, but if you know a good pub maybe just around £3.50 for a Fosters. Shocking stuff. But if people are really desperate, buy a supermarket pack deal and stay at home. House parties are very popular during the colder winter nights.
And the price of a takeaway? A good takeaway for 2 people, say Chinese (2 main courses and 2 sides plus noodles/rice), about £18. Or Dominos online with discount vouchers .
What's the part-time work situation? Good jobs all over the place its just a case of how much you want to over-work yourself, with balancing the course, the job, paying for this that and the other, while still trying to be social.
What's the best feature about the place? London? The history of the building. And the modern world thrown on top. Regents? The green-ness and the quiet, despite being in the city centre. And it's amazing because we are in the city centre!
And the worst? The price. Of everything.
And to sum it all up? It's like nothing else you will experience, but it's something you must.
