Why did you choose to study in London?
To be honest, the reason why I choose to study in London was because of the one-year curriculum for the MA courses. From my perspective, to finish the whole courses in one year is a very efficient way of gaining an authentic English education, plus it also enabled me to have more chances of putting my studies into practice in society after graduating. The second reason was my crush on London. This is an old city with a long history and people with different backgrounds. I love these diversities of London and the story of London itself, which make me feel welcome and able to integrate with London all the time.
How did you choose your course and university?
I choose my course and university by the module curriculum settings, course ranking, faculty strength, practical experience and location.
