Satisfied - worth the money
Tips: There are a lot of Indian students, so no big cultural shift. There was one scholarship from the university of 2000 pounds which was provided to most of the international students. Very satisfied with the university - better than many higher rank universities at various levels. We get good support from the university.
Likes (Indian Food): It is very easy to get access to Indian vegetables and groceries within London. Though there are a lot of Indian restaurants, the cost of living in London is so high that it is not affordable to eat outside regularly. Cooking is a must - you may eat outside once or twice a week.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): At present, the job market is not that great in the UK where the demand is less while the competition is so high. Especially it is very difficult to get a job with sponsorship. India seems to thrive better. There is a 50% chance for me to settle permanently in this country.
