Course recommendations
The Master's course was excellent and especially designed for those whose first degree was in some other diciplines rather than business management. The only problem was limited capacity of library when it comes to Business Management section. I always had to utilise the libraries of the other colleges of University of London(such as London School of Economics) to do my research.

Personal comments
I failed to attend my last exam due to sickness. When I went to discuss this situation with the course administrator, who informed me that the International Management programme does not normally offer a replacement examination, requiring students who are prevented from sitting an examination to wait a year until the next full examination session in May 2004. This would leave me in the same position as if I had failed an examination and wished to re-sit, rather than being prevented from sitting an examination through no fault of my own. Therefore I wrote letters to the Board of Examiners and to the Head of Department. After a gruelling process, I am now granted an examination in August 2003. Whilst I understand that granting a replacement examination is at the discretion of the School Board of Examiners, I feel that it would be inequitable to not grant postgraduate students a replacement examination in August/September 2003, and thereby require them to wait a full year to complete the examinations in satisfaction of their master's degree. As I am sure everyone can appreciate, such a delay in completing a degree would have a detrimental impact on students career, leaving a hiatus in their CV that would require explanation. In the currently very competitive graduate job market, this could prevent students from commencing employment, as a normal condition precedent to an offer of employment is satisfactory completion of university studies.

It is hard to get accomodation (especially in London) after the first year. You will be guaranteed a place in the first year only. This is the problem with accomodation in London, as it is in the city. Another problem is the cost. One advantage, is being in the city and being able to go around (eg no problem w/ getting home late at night).

It's difficult to find accomodation in London, and this hall was really central, although a bit expensive. There was an accomodation office at the university to help you, which was quite nice. I didn't like some of the Hall rules about guests, but apart from that, the place was quite nice.

Great location to study culture, sociology, and the arts

Overall
As I was a student who studied social science especially focused on the cultural industry, London was such a great place to study. During the time there was a protest led by professors in universities across London, in part they showed the genuine side of higher education these days. Also, they wanted us to be learnt the real meaning of education as my major was a part of the Education department.
