    Hi, I'm thinking of picking UCL as one of my options for PPE. I'd be interested to hear about the student life. Are there any formals/socials like in universities like oxbridge/durham? What kind of events are there? Mostly club nights? And is life at the halls very communal, maybe not as much as the college spirit in the aforementioned unis, but do people enjoy nights out together and spending time in communal areas or others' rooms? How about 2nd year accommodation, is it possible to somehow convince that you need to stay in the halls after the 1st year, and is it worth it anyway?

    My main concern is, that as an International student the costly city of London will end up being less social and less life-long friendships than life at a uni in a smaller city? How engaged are people in the unilife versus the citylife?

    Thanks for answers.
