When they say East, they mean pretty far east! The campus and accommodation are located right on the Thames in Beckton, and traveling into Central via the DLR offers a nice scenic route into London. The teaching was great, too – my tutors really cared, and were devoted to the local area which was great in my first year when I wasn’t too sure about living in London.
