Application deadline details:
Way out west! Ealing is such a lovely, quiet and leafy neighbourhood, with loads of parks near campus –everyone tries mini golf in Gunnersbury Park once! There are few nice pubs and bars nearby, and the SU is pretty great. You’re also on the Piccadilly line, which will take you right into central London where you can go out properly (if you’re careful with your cash!), or shop at Westfields’ White City mall. It’s a perfect place to live if you’re uncertain about London!
I find that I only have issues with the constant timetable changing and also a few technical issues when hiring out equipment from the distribution centre (ie cameras, camcorders). But this is only on a personal note.
