At the beginning it was difficult to understand all kind of British accents and slangs. But things eased up quickly as time passed by.

Course recommendations
More choices of courses could have been offered. Was difficult to integrate with the local students I met in the campus as they're in their last year of study and already had their circles of friends.

Personal comments
The house I lived was awesome because I lived with four British students and therefore was able to integrate with them and experience the real british student life. Facilities are sufficient for an exchange student, very considerate and thoughtful of the University housing service.
