Review of "London College of Printing"
The London Institute is comprised of five distinguished colleges.They make up.
I have been in attendance at The London College of Printing for almost a year. The college has over 9000 students so there are a few faces.
I am studying Marketing and Advertising at the main site in Elephant & Castle most famously known for it pink shopping centre erected in the 70s. Although the area is slightly run down there are big plans for its future. At present there are some interesting shops and some OK places to go. There is a nearby Tesco, Wetherspoons, Nandos, Lots of Banks, Iceland, WHSmith, Superdrug, Woolies, Boots and the Megabowl. These are to name but a few.
This is a very exciting time for the college. LCP and the other four colleges which make up the London Institute have recently been awarded University status. Congratulations to everyone who has made this possible. This means more recognition and funding for the Colleges.LCP itself is an interesting College. There is a good mix of people from all walks of life and a very high number of International students studying on all courses. This summer in particular there is major change at the college due to all the building works which are taking place. The new Media block is now completed and the new library and IT suite are well on the way to the finishing stage. This will bring the college to the forefront where it deserves to be. Greg’s the bakers and get some good value, quality food.
Those students looking for a traditional style campus will be disappointed, but for those who prefer to remain independent and make their own way in London will be in heaven.
To be fair to the Student Union they do try to get students involved but there is very little activity and for some this can be disappointing.
The London institute also uses the blackboard system which acts as a medium for staff to communicate with students over the net.
