Life In London

‘Ello from London Town! Welcome and thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading my posts and pick up a few tips that may encourage you to apply for exchange wherever that may be. I am currently in my second year of a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accountancy and I am on exchange for one semester; second semester back home and the Autumn Term here. When I was deciding on where to go on exchange, I put London as my first option as it’s the ‘financial centre of Europe’ and also for it’s close proximity to the rest of Europe for travelling. The university I am on exchange at is called Cass Business School which offers courses in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs. The School is part of City University, which is where all of my classes are held.

The classes that I am enrolled in are a mixture of first, second and third year classes. I am doing two BSB equivalent classes here, an entrepreneurship class and an exchange class called ‘Historic London’. For this particular class, we meet up each week at a different location in London and we essentially go on a tour. So far we have visited: The Monument, Tower of London, Southwark, Westminster Abbey, Imperial War Museum, British Museum and a few other places I can’t recall off the top of my head. The class is a great way to learn about the history of London and how it has become the city it is today. London today as we know it has a ‘City of London’ inside it, which has a separate Lord Major, flag and authorities from the rest of London. It is the area that was known as Londinium, the original London when it was part of the Roman Empire.

Here are a few photos of my time here in London:
