More wonderful weather on Wednesday allowed our London cohort of students to get out into the city and do some exploring. The campus at Imperial is ideally located, close to a number of amazing landmarks, and there is also the world-famous London Underground, which the students used to get to hotspots a little further afield.
The day began, as usual, with breakfast followed by morning lessons. The students have worked very hard, keeping up with their work in class and making sure they don’t get behind with homework or projects either. Finding a balance between work and fun is an important lesson which they have picked up very quickly, and this has allowed them to really enjoy their free time.
More lessons followed lunch, before the students were able to sign out and start exploring. Many of them opted for a little sightseeing, heading along the Thames and spotting Canary Wharf, the London Eye, the Shard and the Millenium Bridge. They were also very excited to have spotted the iconic Palace of Westminster, the location of the UK’s Houses of Parliament!
There was also a trip on the Underground, a must for any visitor to London, and the students enjoyed the experience of whizzing along under the busy streets of the capital. Programme Director Chris acted as a tour guide for some of the landmarks, giving some interesting and humorous details about some of the sights!
The time spent sightseeing was certainly a success, as the students were able to tick off plenty of items on their ‘London To-Do Lists’. In the evening, there was a chance to chat to the counsellors about UK universities, and also to give Chrysa a birthday card and sing Happy Birthday to her!
