I go to QMUL but I don't study politics or business management so I don't know what those degrees are like. The social life at QMUL is pretty good. There are loads of societies on offer that will definitely appeal to one of your interests. Mile End is not a great area but it is only a couple of train rides away from central London. There are a lot of sports clubs you can join and the gym is pretty good.

Thanks, would you say there is a wide variety of people to socialise with? And how easy is it to make friends with people not on your course? I'm a little worried about fitting in at Queen Mary and because of its location, people have told me its difficult to interact with other London unis so you're stuck with the people you're surrounded by.

I study a joint honours degree and I didn't make friends with people doing joint honours like me but I did make friends with people in my seminar classes. You just need to be friendly and make an effort to talk to people. The important thing to remember is that everyone is in the same boat of feeling nervous and shy. So don't feel like you're the only one.

Going to societies is also a great way to make some friends. Half of the people I'm friends with I met at the LGBT society and the equestrian society.

I had not many friends at school but managed to make friends at Queen Mary and I'm not an easy person to get along. I'm sure you can do it too as everyone is always friendly during their first weeks at uni.
