Personal comments
Academic life needs more push on the resources front, like the library. Though it has been well-stacked more books from other parts of the world, offering diverse perspectives would be great.

Personal recommendation
Quite a likeable place, lots of Asians around, mostly Indians. A very multi-cultural kind of environment but hard work must emanate from the students themselves.

Final comments
Carry medicines as health care is the most expensive business in UK. Try not to let your routine get spoiled by the night life and socials. Balance the two and beleive me, learning will be a lot more fun. Enjoy London!

Personal comments
Acco at the UNL is quite satisfactory if one goes by the location. London is an expensive city and I guess the cost is not really on the higher side but more facilities to students would definitely be welcome.
