MSc Marketing
Hello! I am Naz. I am an MSc Marketing student from Istanbul,Turkey. I first came to the UK two years ago and fell in love with the culture. I always wanted to come back so I applied to Queen Mary and here I am! I love reading, movies, writing, and sneakers! While the international environment in Queen Mary helps me broaden my perspective in life, I also try to participate in extra-curricular activities. Currently, I am in the marketing team for Queen Mary Racing and I am the course rep for MSc Marketing. I will make lots of memories and share my experience with you through out the year!

Mile End Recreations

East London, the home of the new cool. Thanks to the 2012 Olympics, East London has become more popular than ever with Shoreditch, Hackney and Brick Lane. This is the place to be, this is the place to hang out, go to pubs, restaurants and exhibitions. So when you find out that your campus is in the heart of East London, a bus or tube ride away from everywhere, you get excited. Even around the campus, there are some many things to do! Let’s take a look at some of them

Taking a walk down the Regent’s Canal

The canal is one of my favorite things about the campus. Located next to the campus, it gives the feeling of nature in the middle of the city. On a sunny day, you can have a nice jog, walk down to Victoria Park or even rent a Barclay’s Bike in front of the campus and take a nice ride with the gorgeous view of the boathouses.

Victoria Park

Even though there is the very nice and recreational Millennium Park on the other side of the canal, If you want to have the real park experience, Victoria Park is where you should go. As one of the oldest and biggest parks in London, Victoria Park has proper weekend leisure activities. You can have amazing cakes at The Pavillion Café, take a walk, have a picnic, rent a boat or even play tennis.

Genesis Cinema

One of the things that excited me the most when I first moved in was to see that there was a cinema down the road, 10 minute walk away. Genesis Cinema shows all the new box office movies as well as some old classics. Don’t forget that Wednesdays are two-for-one.

Go Karting

This one does not really need much explanation. Every single one of us love to bring out the ‘Fast and Furious’ in us and this is the safest and most fun place for it. Only a 4 minute walk away from campus, Revolution Go karting even has a café where you can enjoy a delicious meal. Also, if you want to keep the adrenalin rush going, not only in your mind but also on your hard drive, they even provide a ‘Helmet Cam’ service.
