    WHAT?!? A week or two? Unless you have an extra 1,000+ pounds lying around to spend on hotels, I suggest you arrive one or two days earlier. London is a very easy place to settle in, especially if you've lived in Hong Kong for a long time.

    I would recommend buying most electronics (except printers) in Hong Kong before leaving. Remember that you have a baggage allowance on the plane, so buy wisely. Bulky items should be bought in London.

    Halls only open on the 2nd, I think.

    Oh yeah, if you really must have rice to eat every once in a while, a rice cooker is a must.

    today's the 28th AUGUST. You do know that Imperial only starts on the 2nd OCTOBER. Therefore, you're spending a month in London (in hotels?!?!). Either you're very rich, or you're just nuts...

    You can't move in until Oct 2nd, so in effect you'd be lugging all your stuff around with you in london. Not to be recommended.

    Your parents can't communicate in their natural langauges, so they settled on English. Hence you speak English too, so you can speak to your parents.

    ok, well, i know there are a lot of international students who'll go to Imperial. I'm from luxembourg so I would like to know some german or french people going to Imperial, perhaps even doing MSci Physics (with year in europe) as I do. I don't want to forget those languages by not using them any more. I know that i should improve my english as well as it is my 4. language but i think i couldn't survive the monotonie of using only one language a day.

    /me me will come to Imperial. I'm from Germany but I'll do Mechanical Engineering (without year in europe ).
