1. London is one of the world´s greatest and most fascinating cities - and a uniquely rewarding place in which to be a student.
The capital´s influence, past and present, is recognised internationally, its history and culture offer a wealth of sights and experiences and its opportunities for leisure and living are renowned.
2. For those who wish to enrich their studies, London has some of the world´s most celebrated libraries, including the British Library and the London Library; and museums, from the long established, like the Natural History, Science and British Museums, to the newer Design Museum and die Museum of the Moving Image. Alongside these are galleries and schools of expressive art that make London an artistic centre to rival Paris and Rome, such as the Royal Academy of Art, the Tate Gallery and the National Gallery to name just a few.
3. When you want a well earned break from your studies you will find London is the place to be. The variety in London makes a simple walk an adventure - from its architecture to the unique character of its picturesque parks and peaceful open spaces. Each of London´s areas has its own character and style, mixing cafe culture with busy and colourful markets and more. In places like Soho, Chelsea, Covent Garden, Camden Lock, Kensington and Hackney you will find street entertainers, cuisine from virtually every corner of the world and goods of every description. And getting about in London is easy with the bus and underground networks.
