A Day in the life in my new hometown: Londontown

You might be thinking to yourself right now how does one even establish, a quotidian routine as a foreign student, well allow me to explain. Moving to an unknown city may seem like a stressful and intense experience, let alone an unknown city that is also known to be as one of the world’s largest megapolises. I like to consider myself a pretty adaptable individual, but I will admit that it took me a while to achieve a so called “routine”.

Academic Culture in London

Aside from the expected British accent that all professors obtain, there are many other factors that differentiate a classroom environment at Pitt to the one I experienced during my study abroad program. First of all, my course schedule was completely different as opposed to the one I had at Pitt. Classes would take place once a week, each being three and a half hours long aside from the internship course which would only go for an hour and a half. Most of my classes were in the afternoon from 2:00-5:30 however, I did have one class in the morning from 9:30-1:00.
