    Yeah he is.

    Dont worry Rysh, there are loads of 'getting to know each other' opportunities. My tip is to sit next to people you want to know at any of your introductory sessions They make you talk to them.

    They have also have a wine and cheese reception etc You are lucky in that respect being on such a huge course.

I have friend who is doing the Access to Medicine course at Guy's though.

    Whats wrong with the Strand Campus?? When I went, I thought it looked really nice...well, once you got past the horrible 1970s carpark front, and the maze-like layout on the inside. If you approach it from the back, you walk through the courtyard area, which is enclosed by some really attractive Victorian London townhouses- and it all backs onto the Thames, which is a bonus.

    I never said anything bad about the Strand Campus. I love it. I used because I will know one less person from UKL when I go there.

    I agree. Kings has some of the most stunning architecture out of all the London Colleges.

    Hey, that's great because one of my best friends is doing the same course as you as well! Even though we aren't doing the exact same course, I think we all still attend the same lectures and stuff for the first 2 years. Whereabouts you from then? I live in Lewisham.

    How do you get to the strand campus from the back? I'd rather walk through a nice courtyard than from the street itself.. !
