    You can take some modules at other UoL colleges - subject to approval, timetables etc.

    Possibly - it depends on the course you are doing. I know someone who had RHUL as one of his choices for History last year and one of the main reasons was the possibility of taking modules elsewhere. You need to check the course details though.

    1. You have access to the UoL (Uni of London) buildings. as well as the UoL gym, UoL societies which allows you to network with students from other London universities

    2. You are in London, a financial, cultural, scientific hub. There are loads of opportunities here (with tons of competition as well)

    3. A degree from a random London university is likely to be more useful than a degree from a random British university (excluding RG unis outside London) so you have the London brand on your degree

    I think you can. But I was not saying that. Every london university has its own societies and apart from that, the collegiate entity called University of London (UoL) has its own societies. Any member of a UoL university can join UoL societies. Check it here.
