    There are many gigs in local pubs, but you might have to go out and look for yourself. There are music societies too that you could join.
    Thanks :]

    As a former fresher, I highly recommend Feilden, Lindop, Pooley and France for social life. I was the first batch of students living in Feilden and it was absolutely awesome. In fact, I'm in my final year now and still hang out with my 'feilden gang' regularly....

    Nope if you are a first year you will have some practice exams in december. These do not count towards your final grade. During your second and third year you only have exams in the summer, which do count.

    Not all halls have common areas. I've been living in Creed Court this year. We do not have a common area. I think it's the shared bathroom places that do, but check that. A few people have TV's, but personally, I'd never have time to watch it! Plus the cost of a TV licence is heaps. If I ever want to catch something on TV, I usually log onto I-Player or something.

    Hope this helps

    With iPlayer, ITV Player, and 4oD there is no need for a television with an expensive licence. Chances are you'll meet someone who has a TV, just use theirs! haha.

    Do you mean a language course that is entirely separate to your degree?

    If so, the answer is yes they do. I took Spanish this year for one evening per week. I could undertake assessments if I so wished and they were not credited to my degree, so I could do them for fun.

    Thank you. How many hours of lectures/seminars/tutorials do you have in first year?

    For law at queen mary the seminars are weekly, so the 4 seminars a week and they come to 4 hours and then you have lectures which come to 5 hours. You have one day off which is wednesday. I would say that although that doesnt sound like may hours a lot of the work is done outside the classroom, as you will have a lot of cases to read, and since the seminars are weekly there is always one piece of seminar work need doing. hope that helps
