Leaving school is kind of a big deal. But after you’ve left, you need to decide what you’re going to do next, and where you’re going to go. Do you stay in your home town and get a job? Perhaps you want to travel and see the world? Or are you going to further your education by going to university?
If you’ve chosen the latter (go to university), then you need to think about what course you will study, which university you will attend, and where you will live. But with over 130 universities in the UK alone, choosing your university destination can be a tough one. So, to help make your decision a little easier, here are a few reasons why London is the perfect city to live and study in.
With more than 40 universities in London, finding a desired course and university to study at shouldn’t be a problem. What’s more, a number of top universities are located in London – with 4 making it into the Times Higher Education top 40 universities in the world, so the qualification you gain may well be internationally recognisable.
There’s over 400,000 students studying in London, and approximately a quarter (100,000) of those are international students – making London one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world. And by studying and living in London, you will have the opportunity to make friends and relations with people from right across the world.
During the hours and days that you’re not in university or studying, you’ll find plenty to do right on your doorstep in London. Whether it’s watching international sports matches or superstars playing at some of the UK’s most renowned arenas and venues, or a trip to some of the world’s oldest and greatest museums or galleries, there’s something for everyone – no matter what your budget is.
