    How bad is the gower place practice? I've heard some really bad reviews and am thinking of changing GP to the one on museum street.

    Is there a 'club' night at UCL/ULU or similar? I know there are many bars, each with drinks deals, but any where a club night or similar happens which are run by the Uni/unions?

    I've had no bad experiences there What have you heard? Granted I've only had one short appointment, but the doctor was hands-down the nicest doctor I've ever seen.

    there are so many Britons.
    Should be doing maths It's stacked-out with international students. By which I mean that people keep talking to me in Chinese (or presumably Chinese!) and I have to be like '... you what, sorry?' and it's just awkward

    As for academic problems, do the people who support international students have any specialist support? I can't imagine you'll be the only person who's ever been in this situation, and they might have some sort of provisions - or at least someone to talk to

    The only bad thing about Gower Street Practise is how long it takes to get a damn appointment. Especially the travel clinic.

    In Gmail

    Gear in top right > Mail Settings> Accounts & Imports > Add POP3 Email > Follow the steps
    This wont forward your mail but it will do the same (better) job

    You can also send email from your ucl address using the "Send Mail As" Bit on that page, very easy!

    It was from the NHS page where compared to the other GPs in the area had the highest rate of negative reviews. Having spoken to a couple of people who have been this term everything seems fine, although the compulsory urine test isn't too appealing :rolleyes:

    It's not compulsory if you make a fuss I had a panic attack when they asked me (honestly and legitimately) and they stopped asking after that

    I think it's part of a HIV screen. But they can't, like, hold you down and squeeze it out of you, so you don't actually have to if you stand up to them

    I thought it was just one of the many ways UCL want to test you for chlamydia.

    This is such a pointless question I can't believe I'm even asking:
    So I've been at UCL for 3 weeks. Sadly I can't afford to buy lunch at union cafes every day anymore So I've started to make packed lunches and as the weather's been amazing just eating in Gordon Square gardens. But when it gets freezing in winter is there anywhere to eat your own food inside? What do other UCL students do? Or does everyone just buy food at the refectory or whatever?
    First world problems........

    Can't you eat your own food in the cafe? I had lunch in the Print Room Cafe with a friend and some of her coursemates, and one of them was eating a packed lunch in there.
