Politics 101

             My degree, Politics (used to be called International Politics), is unique in its complex and original approach to the political and social theory. For me, there couldn’t have been a more suitable and helpful way to achieve the aim of better understanding the man, and its social and political ideas and behavior. With a really global view, it expands from political philosophy to comparing the practical political systems and reaches inter-states relationship.

             My student life was rich and extremely helpful in terms of personal development. From a desired academic pursuit to the amazing student parties and new friends, there are many things to tell. The first encounter with my courses and seminars was amazing. Going out of a high school where I had to study for 20 different subjects and entering a field where I had to focus on 4 inter-related courses was just thrilling. Hampstead Campus, the place where I lived in my first year, offered me the pleasure of a quiet, beautiful neighborhood where I could study and where I was surrounded by students of my age from every corner of the globe. The old fashioned buildings, and the atmosphere of serious study really made me feel like a part of an elite, old, and full of tradition academic group. This was ,however, contrasted with the ‘’less academic’’ hard parties I had at every end of the week. There is no need to mention that I made a ton of buddies and also some good, closer friends.


         Based on these, I would strongly advise anyone to live in the university accommodation in the first year. First, it would be a memorable student experience. Second, it is also better in terms of comfort and effort. It is easier to get a place in university accommodation rather than to phone-call, view, analyze costs and distances, and paying bills at private for the first year. This also depends on your money management. The student accommodation has a good price comparing to private accommodation in London. Even so, you might be able to get a better price in a joint at private but only if you are going to share the room or to stay somewhere at a bigger distance from uni. I also recommend getting a double room in a student campus, which is the best if you care more about the costs.

     Regarding London, well, there is an old saying that goes like this: If, you are tired of London, you are tired of Life. In my case, in the first month I couldn’t believe that every morning I was getting up in such a great city.

Big Ben

Although pricey, every corner of it is amazing. Very classy, but being a global capital at the same time, it offers a wide range of museums and places worth visiting
