      Finances

      School fees for international students are fairly high and increase by a small percentage annually. But college accommodation is very affordable, all bills included. Some students qualify for financial support, depending on the relevant scholarship/grant. Cost of groceries for one week is between £10-15. Since the campus is centrally located on the edge of Zone 1, public transport is very convenient and most venues are within walking distance.

      Overall

      My tutor is very approachable and always respond to my emails in a timely way. There are 10-20 lecture hours weekly, with 2-3 independent learning programs and group work sessions. Communications with administration are slow throughout application process and during course time. There are 2-4 practical sessions a month, relating to the strand being taught that week, which is important in applying the knowledge irl. The university provides a lot of support for mental health and student wellbeing, always sending out surveys and interviewing study groups to improve constantly. The university also has a few grants and scholarships to help students financially, in addition to a program set up by the Student Union to provide staple kitchen items.
