Why study for your degree, diploma or top-up degree in London? Over 100,000 overseas students flock to London each year, so why should you join them?
The reasons are far too extensive to cover here, but let’s just look at some of the highlights.
For one thing, attending college in London to study business or finance puts you right at the heart of your sector. England’s capital city is known as the world’s leading financial centre for international business and commerce. What happens in London affects and influences the whole global economy.
London has the power to connect people. It has been chosen as the headquarters of some of the biggest companies in existence, including banks, media companies, top accountancy firms, publishers – the list is long.
Many firms also hold regular networking, recruiting and training initiatives to support students based in the capital.
It’s also academically respected throughout the world, and a hotbed of talent and invention. Did you know that London was where world-changing research into penicillin, DNA and fingerprints happened? More than 70 Nobel Prize laureates have chosen to study or work here.
London is home to the incredible British Library, with its 150 million books (it adds another three million each year). If that’s not enough to help your studies in London, there are another 120 libraries to choose from in the capital.
Let’s be honest, as students the lifestyle could well influence your decision.
The culture, arts and heritage offering is second to none and you can eat every type of food under the sun. With some insights from the “locals”, there is an abundance of affordable nightlife to sample. There are incredible green spaces to relax in too.
London makes all this accessible with a good transport network, that can prove cost-effective with such initiatives as Student Oyster Cards. In fact, London caters well for its target demographics, so there are student discounts on a vast range of things if you do your research.
As for safety; it’s as safe as any other capital city in the world, and if you keep your wits about you and follow the safety advice every student needs to know, then life in London should be incident-free.
London is most definitely open for business and it knows how to give students the best possible experiences and study opportunities.
