    When I went to the open day, the mix of people attending was extremely varied. Lots of different cultures and whatnot.

    I've heard it's chock-a-block fulla brownies. Which is cool, as I'm a brownie myself but I don't want to get dragged into one corner and isolate myself from everyone else for the duration of university. Are they those type of brownies?

    They're mainly not those type of brownies, no. There are people from all different cultures and everybody i've met seems pretty friendly and welcoming!

    Yeah it's pretty good. Packed full of asians which isn't a problem as most are fine with hanging out with everyone. Are a few asians (mostly the foreign ones, not British asians) who will only speak amongst themselves though which is a bit annoying, especially when you have to work in teams.

    Undergrads based in the same building (Northampton), Cass is more diverse, main groups are UK students, Russian speakers, Continentals, Chinese and Indians I would say

    There was a real mixture at the selection day i went to. The student mix at city really reflects the ethnic mix of london as a whole if you think about it.
