    I recommend UCL, my brother studied there for like 8 years and loved it.
    Yeah, I agree that it's all about personal experience and what you make of it at uni

    thanks! So I see it's mainly the teaching quality and facilities are not satisfying:\
    I think student satisfaction would also depend on the kinds of people who appreciate that kind of city lifestyle. Perhaps people who didn't consider UCL's location well might be unsatisfied with the urban scene

    I'm going to study abroad in London soon and was wondering where the best places to socialize or just have a good evening out with friends are in the London area(:
    Depends what you are into? If in C. London and money is no object, then the City is your Oyster. :teehee: (Some complicated jokes in that last bit.)

    If you like dinner parties or friendly cafe culture or whatever, there is still loads of choice. Obviously London is huge with multiple ways to have fun, but are you from LA? Probably in most ways LA is more fun. :sad:

    Thank you! If you do find yourself coming to America, I highly recommend coming to California, and I'm not just saying that because I live here haha out of the states, it has the most to offer

    I used to frequent it a lot,it's in central London and close to Hyde park. It's good for restaurants and cafe and if you're into trying out middle eastern cuisine of course
    Yes, I guess I prefer more diverse places but it's definitely very good for middle eastern cuisine and good arabic coffee.

    OK, well your biggest things are going to be the cold and damp until about the end of next April. Then you get 8-12 weeks of sun followed by more cold and damp. :lol:

    Kings and UCL, you will be in the centre, so very close to loads of happening things if you are a party animal. Best thing is to network like crazy, as a lot of the fun stuff in London happens in groups of friends and in people's flats/homes. There are lots of clubs and stuff but they are super-pricey in central London, so if that's at all an issue, be warned. Being in London will be a lot more expensive for you than being in LA I suspect.

    Beyond that you will need to get used to the Tube (those funny underground train things we use all the time), Buses (basically long double-decked limos with less sophisticated interiors and fixed routes - surprisingly, we all take them in London, not just very poor people), permanently and totally gridlocked roads (so forget driving completely) and bicycles. (Most of us prefer those now.)

    Apart from the cold and rain, we have a lot of Culture. You may want to try some of it. :teehee:

    Advance welcomes to London! :hugs:
