    I would say any form of Competition Law would be most practical out of the lot. I would like to clarify whether you all would be commencing your LLM studies this September. Please let me know

    Kumar, I would suggest taking EU Competition Law with Richard Whish, he is the most reknown professor in Europe inthis field.

    Althaf, I will start my LLM on September. You too?

    Hi. Accomodation in London is quite expensive. I have found a place at Wimbledon. It's at a friend's place. However, I remember the last time I visited, they housed a few University students for a small rent. I shall ask them and see if they have any vacent rooms.

    Patricio, thanks for this information. Have you already accepted the offer? I actually have not yet. I will have to before 31st March. Keep in touch

    Thank you Patricio and Althaf...As far as accommodation is concerned ,I'll decide among Stamford Street, Wolfson House and Great Dover Street....

    I heard Stamford Street is the closest to the King's campus but I've heard the room size is really small. The Great Dover Street Apartments are about a 15-20 minute bus ride away from the main campus according to a friend of mine who is in London.

    If you want to get more information about king's College location,accommodation,banks near to it ,than do visit this website

    Hey, thanks for responses re: accommodation.
    Sellection wise- my scholarship condition is to have LLM spec. in EU law, so guess that will be easy to choose.

    @ Pallav: Where did you get the info on how much credits each module is worth? I have been searching for this and I have only been able to find the description for them.

    I just do a little research on accommodation... it seems to me that Stamford Str Apt is pretty aweful in term of cleanliness, which is an important factor for me. Please refer this link
