Re: Study in the UK. Do you need some advice?
Thanks my friends. I don't know much about the rankings for Law studies.
I chose Sheffield for its quality in research education. My course involved only research papers, no exams (I was kinda sick of examinations at that time). So you can expect lots of projects and assignments to be completed in a semester. Critical thinking, logical thinking, team management, time management, etc. Skills that needed for each work. But no regret. Glad I went for it.
Someone asked me in another forum. Why UK, not US? I prefer English weather to American. haha. Actually I love travelling. Europe is a huge continent to explore. As simple as that.
Open a bank account is almost the first thing every new student arriving in the UK does. Opening an account can be a hassle or fast and simple depending how.
(Note: Happened iin 2002) Most Malaysians like me thought of linking my Malaysian HSBC account to a new account in Sheffield. The documents I need to prepare and request from Malaysian side were painstaking. Why wasting time when there are many other banks around? The only regret was open a new account with HSBC before I left.
Barclays and NatWest are two popular choices among Asian students. Bank account comes with a debit/ATM card and a credit card (optional) without admin charges. The account was activated in 24 hours.
If you are leaving to the UK next year, please don't waste your time at HSBC unless they changed their policies.
