I have one week of enrollment before my classes begin at Queen Mary University of London. The University is on the East side of London in Zone 2 near Mile End tube station. The Regents canal is next to the school, with some student residences having a great view over the water. On top of this Victoria Park is just 10 minutes walk up the canal. My house is about 10 minutes walk to the University. I love walking along the canal area and visiting Victoria Pack at the weekend for leisure. The East End of London is a little poor and rough, but I found Queen Mary’s location to be great and very well connected – you can reach both Canary Wharf and Central London in 15 minutes.
Most students are undergraduates, although a there are plenty of postgraduates like me. There are maybe 4000 international students in the school and we all registered and received our student card and then chose our modules. I expect this will be a very new learning experience and I’m sure will be a lot of hard work. I hope I can handle it well. Our programme director is great and has provided us with a lot of information. Each of the module teachers took time to explain exactly what their module involves so you can choose the one that suits you most. I think it’s great! You get to know the teachers and what you will expect in the class. Fantastic. Moreover, I just paid 5 pounds to join the Fashion Society Group. I’m not sure what is it, but it sounds my style. I also joined the Asia group to meet more friends. We will see.
离正式开学还有几天，开学前个星期是搞登记注册啊，学生证和选择课程之类的东西。皇后玛利伦敦大学坐落在市中心的东部，学校有一条运河刚好坐落在学校里面，位于学生宿舍正对面，学校还蛮大的，维多利亚公园离学校10分种。我们家离学校也是10分钟路程，学校的位置去哪里都蛮方便的，去Canary Wharf 金融中心15分钟巴士，去市中心10到30分钟地铁，去伦敦塔骑自行车15分钟就到，Sainsbury超市10分钟就到，十分方便。
