Academic advice

Course tutors are responsible for guiding you through your degree and helping you with any personal or administrative problems. If this proves unsuitable, contact the School Registry or your Institute Manager who will be able to advise you on an alternative.

Personal safety

London is one of the most interesting and vibrant capital cities in the world; it is also one of the safest. However, as in any large, busy city, crime is a problem so you do need to take care about personal safety and looking after your belongings.
