I have been offered a place to study film at Uni of Westminster but am slightly concerned about the social aspects of studying there. Can anyone who is on this course (or been on it recently) tell me what it's like socially e.g. is it easy to make friends given there may be people living at home and commuting? Also, where do people go out to socialise?

Hi there

Firstly congratulations on your offer to study Film BA at Westminster. This is an incredible achievement given the high number of applications and competitive nature of the admissions process. I will see if I can find a student to respond to your post. Just to let you know that a lot of students who study at Harrow come from outside the London area so don't live at home. We have student Halls on site.

Best wishes

Hiya! I'm a final year student on Contemporary Media Practice (kind of a sister-course to Film) and I lived in Harrow for a year and half before moving in with the boyfriend. In terms of living on campus, there were loads of people socialising at the student union or in Harrow town centre (lots of coffee shops and a good range of pubs). For my first semester in first year I commuted from London Bridge into Harrow and still managed to hang out with people and make lots of friends, then I moved to Harrow but off campus in a little student flat. Plenty of people do group trips into central London as it's only about 20 minutes to Baker Street from Northwick Park on the metropolitan line, I definitely went out into town for a few Nandos and Prince Charles Cinema trips when I was living in Harrow. There's also an all night bus N18 that goes to Harrow from central London if you miss the tube. The most likely places to go out to socialise are two pubs in Harrow called Trinity and The Junction- Trinity have late night events like gigs and DJs and Junction have cheap food and drinks offers if you show your student card. There are other pubs in Harrow although they tend to be a bit more pricey and have a slightly less student vibe. There's a few coffee chains in the shopping area by Harrow On The Hill station like Starbucks and Costa et al, and a cinema inside one of the shopping centres. In the student union they have Messy Mondays where pretty much everyone goes and dances, and they do a karaoke night on Thursdays. They have a pool table in the student union as well so lots of people tend to get very good at playing it.
