    Were there a lot of Canadians students? And were there a lot of older students as well? Did you have any free time outside of law school?

    There were lots of Canadians, they have their own Canadian law society. Some older students but not all that many. I definitely had free time, you can't be expected to be doing law work 24/7!

    How difficult is it to actually comprehend the material especially someone who's never read a law textbook or has had any exposure to studying law.

    I have never been into the summit so I'm not sure what it's like, sorry. But I have been into the Code apartments which are near the Summit and they're very nice, a complete little flat all to yourself. They're a bit further out from uni but I think they do run a shuttle bus
    code says they are 10 minutes away from the uni, is it true? i checked on google map, it says 27mins

    I don't think it's too difficult, once you've started you'll soon pick it up. Lots of people are in the same position before they start and in the end you'll soon get used to it. Some topics may be harder to comprehend than others, e.g land

    10 mins is very optimistic, I'd say it's more like 20 but like I said they do run a shuttle bus, not sure how frequent it is though

    Hi! Just wondering if you knew anything about the Modern Languages department? Or anyone who did languages? I'm keen to find out more about the 3 week summer school they offer at the end of first year in Spain or Italy. Thanks

    I don't know anything about that, really sorry! I know some people who do languages and are currently on their year abroad but I haven't heard anything about the summer school. Sorry!

    Once you start you'll have access to Blackboard which is where all the lecture slides, handouts etc are found, and past papers are on there too.

    I think most do have brief guidance on them, but working on them in a group would be a good idea!

    In first year we had some exams in January, got the results in February time by email and then had more exams in May/June.
    In second and third year I don't think any modules have exams in January, that'll just be essays instead. (Some don't even have assessed essays but they will set non-assessed ones.) Then the exams will be May/June with results by email a few weeks after the end of the exam period, maybe a month or so later.

    Sounds like those exams in 2nd and 3rd year are very stressful if they put in that much content into one exam.

    No they don't get graded at all but they are hugely beneficial and are compulsory.
