While I now work full-time here in London, I originally moved here as a student to complete my Master’s in Media and Communication at the London School of Economics. I explain my decision more in this post, and while I was terrified AF, it ended up being one of the best decisions of my life.
Arriving in London, I thought I was fairly well-prepared and had done as much research as possible, but I ended up reasonably clueless when it came to studying in the UK. For the most part, schooling isn’t wildly different than the US – you attend class, study and read outside, then write papers and take exams. However, there were a few key differences I wanted to cover in a video that would have been helpful to know before I moved my entire life across an ocean to a foreign country. So check it out, and let me know if you have any questions!
I’m hoping to do another post on why you absolutely should get a degree abroad ( EXPAT LYYYFFEE FOREVER) and more of the logistics on how I moved to the UK, but in the meantime I hope this is helpful if you’re planning to study in this lovely country.
