Overall
I wish I had known...
That there would be a large amount of initial costs involved with moving, and a quantitative idea of how much those would be, would have helped overcome the initial shock of being away from home.

Aside from studying, take the time to get to know your surroundings and what London has to offer. Travel as much as possible, because it is easier to do so from one of the city's many smaller airports.

It's a very good university. The teachers are very interesting and make you feel at home. The location is the best, right in the centre of London and the activities the university offers are varied and interesting.

Going abroad is a very great experience. You meet lots of different people who live the same thing as you. I would advise to someone who wants to go to study in London to come with a lot of money because it's really expensive. You have to be ready to spend a lot! As for the accomodation, it's quite hard at the beginning to find something but then everyone is pleased and there is a very useful newspaper called the Loot with hundreds of accomodation ads

I advise everyone to have an international experience, and take the most of it. However, you should prepare it in advance very carefully.

Apply for housing early if cost is an issue becuase it is much less expensive, however the University is not very central to London so you may prefer to lie outside of halls to have the full London experience.

I wish I had known...
Only that things tend to take more time in the UK than in Norway. If I had known I wouldn't have had to stress so much about it and just tried to be patient.

The PR and media department is excellent and due to the few number of students you are very well followed up by the professors and do not feel like one of a million.

Take the bus if you can, you gte to see so much more of London than by tube. Even better-walk! Even though it seems like great distances the tube stops are fairly close and you get to know the city so much better.

Although I do not regret having studied here, I think they should care a little more for international studies.They should try to be more organised.My registration day was chaotic!

Bear in mind that London is a very expensive city, and it can be very difficult to find accommodation.Maybe you are not going to make many British friends, but be sure that you'll find loads of great people among the international students!At least, that's my experience.
