If you want to know about tube or bus rides and how long it could possibly take to commute, try logging onto www.tfl.gov.uk. Theyll give you a pretty good a idea of commuting time and routes you can take

Any idea hw far is Miles End frm Lincoln's Inn field. How much time it would appropriately take by tube or any other public transport?


Hi everybody!
I've made my LLM at QMUL last year and I can share some experience. I lived on campus at Mile End. The location is very convenient. It takes about 12-15 minutes by tube to Holborn station (where Lincoln's Inn field is). I wouldn't recommend bus, it takes too long in day time. However, this bus (25) became our favourite as it was a night bus. So that we often used it to come back home at night when tube was closed. The bus stop is almost in front of the gate of the campus. So, it is very safe, as you enter the campus immediately and there is security.
Close to the campus there is a nice Victoria park, which is very good for jogging and barbeque :)
Not all classes are at Lincoln's Inn, but also at Barbican and Russel Square. It is also easy to get there from Mile End station.
Rooms are nice, and the big advantage is that cleaning is included. The other thing I liked is that there is a new gym in the campus. Also you can easily access ME library. It is good but many students used other libraries (ex., at Russel Square or at LSE, UCL) because ME Library was used mostly by undergraduates and it was a bit noisy.
To speak of disadvantages, at ME you don't feel like you are in London at all :))) And I wouldn't recommend you to walk at night there. Honestly, the first impression of the area is very disappointing and some students tried to do their bests to change accommodation and to rent a flat somewhere else. I also considered that, but stayed there for the whole year. And I do not regret. Only there you can feel real student life. It was great that they placed almost all LLM students in one house, so that we met every day downstairs and had parties in different kitchens :))) It was also very convenient to go out all together and to come back, it was safe and cheap to share taxi.
There are enough shops to buy food nearby and a market (next tube station).
From Mile End (2 zone) it is close to go to Canary Wharf (3 zone), a financial center. There are shops, cinemas, restaurants, bars, and even a skating ring in winter time.
The next station to ME is Stratford. There is a huge transport center: several tube lines cross there, national express, DLR, overground, and a big bus center are there. There is a nice market, many shops. Westfield is being built there. And the most interesting is that Olympic games will take place at that area, at Stratford.
Oh, guys, you are about to start one of the best years of your life! I don't know anyone who regret about it. It was so pity when everything was over. We made friends with people from so many countries. It was a great year!
I wish you all the very best! Enjoy it!

Thanks Yuliya for your very useful post. I was wondering, which accomodation did you live in? As you know, there are several postgraduate houses, but I want to find out which one is the best.

Hi! Glad to know that my post was useful. :)
I lived in Maurice court. The building is quite new.The rooms are ensuite (a shower, not bath tube). And a kitchen is big there (the kitchen is shared). Some of my friends lived in Hatton House. Rooms there are bigger, but the kitchen is very small (you won't cook there often). As far as I remember there is a bath tube as well. But Hatton House is more expensive. So it depends on your preferences. You may like it more as it is located right at the entrance of the campus. However, the rooms in Maurice court building are fine, there is enough space. There is everything you need for study. There are a table, a wardrobe with a mirror, shelves, a bed. Pillows and blankets are not provided. And there is a fridge in every room. The houses, which are close to Maurice court, are similar to it (if you have a map of the campus). The territory of the campus is huge and some houses are a bit far, even outside of the main campus territory. So, it's better to look at the map.
If you are not sure about a certain house. Please, feel free to ask!
Regards,
Yuliya.

I had a similar problem. That was about 2 months back when I tried to accept online. Was quite worried. But when i tried again later in a couple of days time, it worked.
You can try tomorrow. Or else why dont you give them a call and tell them your problem? Speaking to them over the phone is the best, since you can explain to them your problem then and there

Theres no deadline for withdrawing an acceptance. But you should be reasonable and therefore withdraw it as soon as possible so they can give your place to the next in queue. The reasons really dont matter.

Thanks Beicon! :-)
I just wonder what "reasonable" means. Do you think that withdrawing an offer at the end of August is possible? I will probably have to wait until I get admitted to another school in September.

End of August in my opinion isn't reasonable. I think end of June at the most... anything post June would probably unreasonable because it'd be too hard for the university to relocate your place to someone else.

Hi Yuliya, I will be attending QM in September at will be staying at Hatton House. I read that your friends stayed there. I realise that the rooms are more spacious (hence the additional cost), and you are quite right about the kitchen, it's small.

What about the room conditions and cleanliness though. Are they reflective of the price? Do all rooms have views?
