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.

Personal spending habits
Because London is a very expensive city. Everything is more expensive than in Valenvia. Moreover, in Valencia I was living with my parents and in London I was living by myself, which results in higher costs.

Overall
I wish I had known...
Not really. I asked the students that went the previous year to the same university the main questions that I wanted to know. It was really useful. I recommend to do the same. I also registered on the induction week that the university offered for international students. i think it as worth.

Personal recommendation
Most of the resources are pretty good, but it can be good for you if you ask your classmates (locals preferably) about how to face your coursework and how to improve your techniques on writing essays in english.

Final comments
london is quite a expensive city so I suggest to live at the halls of residence at least at the beggining because it's not very expensive and all the bills are included in your payments. Underground is very expensive , so try to get your student discount card at the uni. register with your local doctor and open your bank account as soon as possible.
