Hey salma.elk

I appreciate the difficulty in trying to choose a university during these tough times.

However, I would go on each of the universities websites and have a look if they have any virtual tours of the campus. You could also email a general enquiry line and ask if it would be possible for you to speak to an academic over the phone.

Let me know if I can help at all!

Best of luck,

Ashley

Unfortunately I didn't apply at Westminster for economic reasons (living in London is quite expensive), but when I visited the Uni I wanted to apply for Chinese and Politics. The professors were so friendly! They gave me an excellent impression of the Uni. If I were economically independent I would totally apply there.

From my experience I can say they Middlesex is great univeristy, tutors are very supportive and they trully care about you. Campus is reaaally nice, same with the library, and printing is for free! Every single year they add more things and make campus even nicer and better so you want to spend time there and it's easy to get there, you just need to take northern line. If you have more questions I am happy to help!

I enjoyed my time at the University of Westminster primarily down to its central location. I would consider it to be the most centrally located campus when comparing it to other London based universities. As you mention Sociology, this would mean you'd be studying at the Regents Street campus which is a right next to the BBC at the top of the street. this campus has really retained its traditional history and authenticity yet has had considerable investment over the past six years. The teachers have always been approachable and on your side. They will be keen to keep in touch with your progress and to make sure you have all the help you can get.
One thing I took from it was the wide ranging job opportunities that students can apply for whilst completing their studies. The universities have great links to internship work which provides some key experience when you do eventually leave.

Hi! I’m currently a student at Greenwich

It can be really tricky to try and pick a uni when you have so many options- I had the same problem trying to decide on a uni.

Here are some things that you could do:

Compare rankings in areas that are important to you such as student satisfaction

When I was applying to uni, student satisfaction was really important to me as it can tell you a lot about how satisfied students are with their courses.

You can check the satisfaction by subject and generally overall- I’ve attached a link so you can have a look for yourself
https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...t-satisfaction

I would also think about what you’re looking for at uni whether that’s nightlife, the teaching, the location, living away from home etc

I would say Greenwich is a really accessible place to get to if you were planning on commuting. We have a train station and DLR station nearby, buses all around and even a ferry service! If you were interested in living away from home we also have some accommodation near every campus.

If you’re interested in working whilst studying it may also be a good idea to check if the uni offers any part time employment to students.

At Greenwich there is an opportunity for students to apply to our student ambassador scheme which allows students to have flexible work that fits around their studies. I’m a student ambassador myself so I get the opportunity to work on open days and in various other roles.

Going to open days is also a great chance to get a feel of the place and see if it suits your personality. Have you gone to any open days yet?

If you have any more questions let me know- I’ll be more than happy to answer
