The football club - I initially thought that the training sessions for the football club were serious and intense, but we just end up playing small sided matches. There was no coach to take the sessions as well, so I was quite disappointed by the lack of quality training sessions. I'm also quite disappointed with how the ULU league is organised. There are no linesmen for the matches, so subs from both teams have to do the job, which is something all universities in ULU can complain about I guess. Lecturers - I think the quality of teaching of all the lecturers I had were terrible. All the lecturers undoubtedly knew their stuff, but methods and concepts wern't explained properly and clearly. In some cases where English isn't their first language, it was even difficult to understand what some of the lecturers were saying. The lecturers notes were often very bad as well, with alot of mistakes in them. Would definitely recommend working off the suggested text books for the year and only use lecturers notes and problem sheets to see what the lecturer is looking for in the exam.×
It feels like there is no integration within the different campuses. Overall it has been a great experience.Report

I stayed at International Halls which is one of the intercollegiate halls of residence available to all students at the University of London (King's, UCL, LSE, Royal Holloway, etc.) This was good as I met a lot of different people not only from other countries but also who were from different universities and at different stages of their university education. It was very different from the experiences most people have of their halls where it mainly a collection of other first year students from the UK. I enjoyed meeting the wide variety of people during my time there and it will be what I remember most. The food got a bit dull and boring after a term and was also served quite early in the day so I often found myself going out and getting a second dinner with some friends later on. The place was always kept fairly clean, a lot cleaner than some other halls I visited. I was a bit annoyed that there was a fee to have people stay overnight in your rooms when other halls did not have this.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
