Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
London is one of the most beautiful cities I have been to. I would chose an apartment or house because it would allow me the opportunity to really live inside the British culture. Life on campus keeps you slightly sheltered

The accommdations where rather good actually. I was given my own room which had plenty of space. Also in my building there were only about 30 people which really made it easier for us to establish deeper friendships. The facilities were also quite accommodating. Though, the location was a little risky after sundown.

The University was very old and historic. The campus was very beautiful but the dorms could have been better. I think coming from the U.S. we expect "state of the art" accommodations, and when we have to stay in a place other than that we get discoraged. Overall, the university was very accommodating to the exchange students.

Public transport in London I must say was terrible! You never know when there will be a strike or what might happen during your course of travel. The prices for transportation changes every year.

Overall
I wish I had known...
That the medical system in Great Britain is very bad; there are no specialists around in practices like in Germany; it was a real problem when I fell sick Housing in London is a huge problem; the accomodation is bad and very expensive. Nobody at the university helped me when I was asking for support.

If you want to go a place where you actually LEARN something; if you want to study hard go there. If you want to party, go somewhere else.

London is always the best choice. It is the best place where to be as a student. But you will need cash; otherwise you cannot survive there.

At the beggining it was difficult to understand people speaking in English, but later, you start getting used. You can improve a lot your language skills because everyone there, even international students, communicate in english.
