After graduating in 2009 from high school in the Chicagoland area I packed up and moved to the heart of East London to pursue my undergraduate degree in International Relations. I write about life in London, being a student in a foreign education system, my travels, and, because I just can’t help myself, political happenings. @alschiele

Prospective Students
If you’re a prospective study abroad student, or looking to get your whole degree abroad, I’ve compiled some resources that I found helpful while going through the process of studying in the UK. This includes tips on researching a university, the UCAS application system, and visa and immigration requirements. And, of course, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or just want a general chat about the whole process!

Why Gloriously Dismal?
Because I love that London looks like this a lot of the time.
