    Thinking of applying to UCL but scared it'll be hard to make friends

    It's the complete opposite! I'd say it would be easier for you to make friends in London than in unis up North.

    London is extremely diverse and unis like UCL attract people from all over the world, therefore, there will be so many students who are in the same situation as you! Most of whom will probably be anxious about making friends too.

    One of the best things about London is that there's never a shortage of things to do, so even if you don't get along with people in your course (highly unlikely as everyone is so friendly) there will still be dozens of societies you can join, many opportunities to discover new hobbies, chances to volunteer for different charities etc. All of which are places you're bound to make good friends.

    UCL is a great uni and I'm sure you won't regret applying you might be a little bit out of your comfort zone at first but isn't that part of the whole uni experience
