Capital location

Our students get to experience life in one of the most vibrant, diverse and exhilarating cities in the world.

We have everything here: music festivals and West End shows, world-famous museums and independent cinemas, roof-top bars and quirky pop-ups. Plus, more than 3,000 parks and open spaces for you to relax in. Millions of people travel from all over the globe just to get a taste of London. However, our students get to explore the city every day.

The best thing about living in London is that you can never get bored. There are so many things to do and so many places to explore that make London a very unique place to live. It feels like I’m living the dream
