    Apparently a lot of students are turning to sugar daddies nowadays

    OP: to stay on topics, I'm not sure what you're after. A list of must see destinations or a list of the hottest clubs? TBH its more fun exploring it with your friends and finding out for yourself. But the point Helenia makes is valid. Everything is more expensive in London, so you'll have to learn to be frugal in your fun seeking.

    Ahh that makes a bit more sense. I'm sure someone will be along soon with some better advice, I've not really done much CV building yet.

    But generally look for opportunities to get involved in research/audits etc. Intercalation will get you points.

    That's what I was thinking, but it's so hard to get involved, I feel like I'm being a burden lol

    Really not much different from being a medic anywhere else. All universities with medical schools will have research opportunities, big name hospitals and so on. Get on with your course, settle into university life, and if you discover something along the way that catches your interest then see if you can get some research/an audit/more experience in it. There are hoops to jump through, but don't get obsessed right from the start!

    Just email a professor (who has a research lab) and see if they are open to taking on a summer student. Most are more than willing to do so, although what you get out of it depends on who you end up being paired with.
