Greenwich is seriously the nicest part of London! It’s a lovely little suburb, with great little shops, pubs with atmosphere and character, and the park, which is beautiful no matter what time of year. The one thing it isn’t is cheap, but the eagle eyed among you will be able to find the right deals and cheaper nights out in the city – New Cross is a short bus ride away and has plenty of nice, cheap(er) pubs. The course itself was great, with the lovely accommodation being the crowning touch of my experience.

My experience so far in the uni is so far but for others it could be different and my the weeks I’ve got classes is just Tuesdays and Thursdays and their both long hours but still it’s good like I don’t feel like I’m falling behind on stuff
It was very tricky to begin with but I soon settled in and everyone makes everyone else feel welcome and the staff and support team are very helpful and there are lots of people to talk to if you’re struggling settling in
