Michael N. - London, England - Fall 2013
London is an amazing city! I love it! The first couple of days I was a bit nervous because I wasn’t exactly clear where I had to go and what I needed to do. But everyone is in the same situation as you are, so I saw it as a new experience. I made friends with mostly British people and it has been great. They are really nice people and have showed me around London. In the first week, I’ve toured round Westminster, taking in sights like Big Ben, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, as well as Buckingham Palace and the Victoria Monument, and have had an amazing time! There is so much history and culture here. We’ve rented Bikes for the day and learned the Tube underground network in just a few days. The people are really nice and my friends are awesome. I am still trying to get my classes straightened out and as soon as that happens, I will let you all know about my classes and the course load. I am having a great time; my advice to everyone who is thinking about studying abroad, I say go for it! Its an amazing opportunity and you get to travel around Europe. I am planning to go Paris and Amsterdam very soon. Also, in November I will visit cousins and friends in Barcelona and Madrid. I am having a great time so far. If you have any questions about Queen Mary University of London or about London in general, just let me know and I will try to give you an answer soon.
