As my first degree in University of Istanbul was conducted in English language I was already very familiar with using the language in academical way. I, however, improved my ability of speaking fluently in everyday life.

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.

London is a musical heaven if one likes to go and see musicals. Mamma-mia, Chicago and Fame were the best among many others.
