    Hi, so I'm considering applying for city for criminology and psychology( joint) but I am unsure about the social aspect of city? Is it a easy environment to meet new people? Also how good is the location?

    Thanks !

    I am looking to apply for BSc Financial Economics but I'm also unsure of the social aspect of the university. In comparison to other university open days, City University of London seemed entirely focused upon the academic side of the university without much thought for social events or societies.

    The location is good, between farringdon/angel/old street where there are loads of restaurants/bars etc. However the uni is very academically focused, the social aspect will depend on how much you want to get involved. There is a freshers fair where you can sign up to clubs/societies and they will do their own events, but its very much the case of you have to put the effort in. There are also sports social nights on Wednesdays at the SU which anyone can attend.

    It's definitely become a better university now that it is a part of the University of London. Socially it could be better but people tend to go and do their own things with their friends. Do join some societies and clubs as well, though.
