The 1st of September we had our first school day and now we already passed our first mid terms exams. I left my tiny little home country, called Luxembourg, more or less two months ago in order to join the Bachelor program of ESCP and I think it is time for a summary.
At the beginning the overwhelming internationality of the Bachelor students can be confusing. You might not remember all the names of the people and where they come from but trust me after one or two weeks you will be fine and feel at your ease with everybody. What really impressed me from the first moment on was this truly international environment offered by ESCP Europe. It is just amazing what a multicultural group of students we are. Everyone speaks several languages and each of us has experienced different cultural backgrounds. It makes it really amazing to exchange opinions and share experiences with the people.
It didn’t take a long time to get to know each other and quickly our Bachelor group got to know the different pubs of West Hampstead. The after school meetings at the ‘Black Lion’, where we share good moments (and some beers), started to become a habit. The awesome home parties, which take place during the weekends, are another great opportunity to get to know everybody from the program.
London’s nightlife scene offers great spots for every taste; from Techno to Hip-Hop there is really something for everybody. The clubs in here might be expensive in general but they are worth it. You will be able to listen to some of the world greatest DJs here in London, making every night out in London a new unique experience.
So that’s what my first impression of ESCP Europe London looked liked. And I am already looking forward to the many exciting adventures waiting for us in London.
