London - one of the most exciting cities in the world

Studying in one of the most important cities in the world will open lots of doors for you. Most of the major companies have offices in London. The city itself is a hub for innovation in every domain, from fashion to tech, from business to arts. This means plenty of opportunities to find work during your studies and to kick-start your career after graduation.

If you like to meet people from different cultures, you'll enjoy living in one of the most international cities on the planet. In London, you can meet people from more than 270 nationalities and hear conversations in over 300 languages on a daily basis. 

A famous quote says: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford". Everything important happens here first, so there's no time to get bored. Just taking a walk in the heart of the city passing by Westminster Abbey or Big Ben will make you feel like you're on top of the world.

Even though London is generally considered an expensive city, being a student here means you'll benefit from many discounts for travel, fun and food. Most museums are also free.

Festivals in London are nothing short of amazing. If you like to party in large crowds, you can join the one million people who dress up exotically and celebrate together every year at the biggest street festival in Europe (The Notting Hill Carnival).

The diverse nightlife scene makes London a capital of fun. Cool clubs like the Ministry of Sound, Fabric and Heaven are great places to dance the night away with your friends and wind down after exams. 

London is connected to virtually every part of the world so getting here will be very easy. There are four main airports based in London: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton.
