QM 2011/12


you mean 3-4 months or weeks? mine will probably come out in July so I dunno when am I gonna apply for a visa!

Who all are from Delhi, please get in touch!


Hi, I am going this September 2011 for IP at QM. I am from Mumbai. Did you guys book accomadation? Its very confusing to book an accomadation. But I have been told that we have to just book for the Deposit and only once we get there we are supposed to book the residence according to our choice ! Is this true?

I am planning to apply for Visa by June end. Anybody here has got their CAS?

Does any one know how much the living and tuition costs will amount total in rupees?

They say its 800 pounds for monthly expenses. Does it include accomodation fees?

A bit about classes ...
When u ppl start the LLM, u'll get free booze and lunch at a nice theater as part of induction programme......make the best use of that day as most of us end up very tipsy unable to concentrate on what happened in the afternoon session. Regrets?? definitely not. U get to meet all ur new classmates at the bar...over free alcohol.
Then the next 2 weeks after induction is called the "shopping week" - yeah its the official 14 days when u get to go to all modules, listen to the introductory classes and decide whether to join the module or not. so dont worry about thinking which modules to take before u leave-instead party with ur friends back home.
When the classes actually start, it'll be very cold and most of the popular classes like international finance, arbitration etc will be held at barbican campus(charterhouse square) from 6pm to 8 pm or 5 pm to 8 pm...yeah in the evening. Play TT or pool at barbican halls after class - dont worry tubes run till half past midnight from barbican to mile end.
ON A SERIOUS NOTE PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU ATTEND CLASS. . .I NEVER DID AND SO MY FRIENDS...REGRET IT BADLY NOW.

Rest of info after a while.....busy writing dissertation.

Wow, as usual, I see a lot of Indians in this post which is not surprising at all as we have about 30-40 Indians who will be passing out this year. The exams are over and dissertation is taking its toll. Anyway for all those joining this year, accommodation will cost u about 400 pcm and additional expenses will cost u around 300 pcm and for all baffled about travelling, weekly oyster pass with student discount will only cost u £19.30. Price of a can of stella is £1.20 but if u buy from off-license(which u c everywhere btw) u get 6 for £5. . For all those vegetarian there are a lot of bangladeshi shops that sell everything from frozen parathas to maggis, all masalas etc. Rahim's departmental store is one of the favourite shops for Indians which is just across the street from Stocks Court (this is where u find most of the Indians, pakistanis and other Asians). The accommodations in Mile end campus are really good and I'd have to say Maurice Court is the best of them all although Hatton has a bathtub, friends I know that are staying there hardly use them and Selin Court, Lodge House, Chesney House and Chapman House are very small in comparison to Maurice. Drinking by the canal is an experience like i can't explain but try to avoid smoking on campus as they are really strict.
U get to choose ur specialisation and modules in the first two weeks. Most of the classes for banking and finance law modules are held at charterhouse square which is a minutes walk from Barbican tube station. Some Company law modules will be held at IALS and Senate house. IP classes are generally held in Senate although u might have some modules in UCL with students from UCL and Kings. The mile end library will be open 24 hrs during the exams plus u can always access any other library of UOL. The post graduate research centre is a very nice place to study in a quite environment which as the name suggests is only accessible by post grads.
All in all u'll have a nice year so make the most of it.

Ok!
Query no. 1: Everyone's been saying Mile End Road is not a very safe area to be located in. Yes?

Query No. 2: How bad is the traveling from Mile End to Lincoln's Inn going to be? I have chosen Media as my specialisation, so I'm assuming most classes will be held at CCLS?

Thanks!

Mile end is relatively safe compared to few miles east of mile end. I shuld say nothing to be tensed about the place as we all used to come very late, like between 2 and 4 after parties and never had any incident of any sorts. U might as well ask juliet, as she used to stay in barbican and go home from mile end mostly taking the last tube at 1. . .alone....never had any problems right juliet???

oh its pretty safe......tube from mile end to holborn where CCLS is located will only take about 20 mins and the frequency is very good. media law classes will be held at senate house which is adjacent to IALS. the nearest tube station is Russell square but if u prefer walking then its only a 10 mins walk from CCLS

Thats great! Coming from Bombay 20 mins traveling time is nothing!
So how would you rate the Media law course? The faculty, the modules etc?

oh helloo toohtooh i'm not specialising in media, its just a module that i've taken. anyway it was a relatively small class compared to arbitration or any of the finance and banking classes, all in all a good class with lots of discussion its not just a one sided affair like those of arbitration or finance so ya a good plus point.
