History of Art and Archaeology
Also thanks to its location near the British Museum, we had such memorable classes in the museum looking at the actual objects that you would only see in your text book elsewhere.
The uni library also holds rare books that I would find it difficult to find even back at home in Japan.
I lived in a private accomodation so cannot make a really valid opinion on this on a personal level.
but my friends at Uni who used to live in the student accomodation did not complain once. The location is near the uni and it's in the heart of London's West End!
London is a city full of temptation and disturbance to your study. It is also expensive to live in.
I have failed my first year because I was not a serious student enough... I was enjoying my social life too much in the new city I had just moved in and failed some courses.
This was a big awakening to me and I managed to proceed to the 2nd year after one more year repeated. I was very disappointed with myself but London has never disappointed me.
London is full of things, good and bad.
Being in such an international city, your classmates and neighbours will be from all over the world.
I have met many people that I would not have been able to meet in my home town.
You will have a lot of opportunity to learn about new things that happen in London.
You study history of Art and see the new arts being born around the corner. That's London.
I have never met any student who were 100% happy with their libraries. Let's be honest, no uni has enough space to let all students study at once.
I remember there were long queues before the photocopiers. But it's all down to your own time-management. If you time it wisely, you can always avoid the queues.
Books were absolutely awesome. I have read many books there that had nothing to do with my coursework since they were just
My University experience-COVID style
Politics, Year 1
The accommodation is amazing. It's really fancy however due to the fact it is in central London it is ridiculously expensive and we still have to use a form of public transport t get to the university. The people are really lovely and the standard are great
The library is literally breathtaking. It's absolutely incredible. It's completely open plan at it has a really good atmosphere in which all the students just want to gain more knowledge. The bookeshelves are filled with a vast array of interesting books. The SU is amazing, everyone is so kind and fun. There is always something going on.
The course is really interesting. I love the take we are given. We are constantly asked to criticise the norm. I love the fact that we are asked to look at it from different perspectives rather than the west. The lecturers and seminar teachers are all amazing at what they do and they create an encouraging atmosphere to learn and excel in.
We are in central London so the city life is outstanding. It just doesn't stop. I love feeling like we are in the centre of everything. We are next to UCL uni aswell so there is a real student vibe to where our uni is
You really must be prepared for the amount of reading that you will receive. It is important to reallh understand what you are reading rather than just skim through it and hope for the best. It is imperative you keep up to date with current affairs and aren't shy to speak out.
