New Year As An American Student Studying In The UK

Posted by Brenda Leonhardt, ATP Student Ambassador on Jan 16, 2017 5:29:11 PM

The last few weeks of the year is always a rollercoaster no matter where you live. You have Christmas and New Year’s within the same week, people are rushing around buying Christmas presents or spending Christmas money, and others are travelling to visit family and friends. It can be a bit intimidating trying to manoeuvre through your plans and decide how to spend the new year, especially in a foreign country. Personally, I felt the need to stay in the UK over the holidays instead of going home, so I found myself looking for ways to celebrate with my new friends over here in the UK.

Christmas Time While Studying In London

Posted by Alex Elsey, ATP Student Ambassador on Jan 3, 2017 1:28:43 PM

Christmas time is my one of my favorite times of year. Some of my favorite movies are always on during Christmas time including Home Alone, Elf and A Christmas Story. My mother always makes cookies during Christmas time and we always go to the Christkindlmarket in Chicago to look at the shops, lights and drink some mulled wine. This Christmas will not be like any one before because it will be the first time I spend it away from Chicago. London is full of things to do during Christmas time so even though it is different, it is still the best time of year.

I had about a week or so to come down from the spooky festivities of Halloween before I found myself embracing the Christmas Spirit...

Football Or Soccer? A Student's Guide.

Posted by Alec Pierce, ATP Student Ambassador on Dec 21, 2016 10:38:29 AM

As a student in the United Kingdom, a huge part of my life revolves around football, ahem, soccer.

The British culture is extremely fond of the sport that they call ‘football’, and this can be seen in many aspects of life over here. Whether it is hearing your friends talk about it, seeing how vibrant pubs become on a match day, or taking part in one of the many playing experiences that are available, football is somewhat inseparable to modern British life.

Great Theater on a Student Budget

Posted by Debra Register, ATP Student Ambassador on Dec 15, 2016 1:03:44 PM

One of the many wonderful things about studying drama in England is the wide array of main stream to experimental theater available every day. Having chosen to study in Canterbury which is a quick sixty-minute train ride to London I have been able to zip up to the city for theater trips including many one-day marathon theater-adventures shared with new friends I’ve made here at university.
