London is a notoriously expensive city for living costs and night life. However, I encourage students to take advantage of student nights at various bars and clubs across London, including student bars on campus, which are often much more affordable. Transport is competitively priced compared with other cities in the UK, such as Manchester. The cheapest way to travel by public transport in London is by bus, where anyone with a contactless card or Oyster can make an unlimited number of journeys within one hour for £1.50.

Study in North London

North London’s metropolis stretches from the banks of the River Thames up towards the North Circular and beyond, but on this page, we’re covering the area north of the Euston/Pentonville Road, which is home to some of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the capital, as well as London Metropolitan University, Regents University London and Middlesex University.

 

London Metropolitan University

London Metropolitan University is located in Zone 2 in the neighbourhood of Holloway. Founded in 1848 and now made up of over 10,000 students, this public research university has a TEF Bronze rating.

 

Regents University London

Regents University London was founded in 1984 and is made up of around 2,200 students. The non-profit private university has a TEF Bronze rating and is located in Zone 1 with its campus based in the heart of Regent’s Park.

Middlesex University

Middlesex University is located in Hendon (Zone 3/4). Boasting over 20,175 students, Middlesex has a TEF Silver rating. It is comprised of six schools: Art and Design, Business, Law, Health and Education, Media and Performing Arts and Science and Technology. They also have a hugely diverse staff and student body, representing 165 nationalities.

North London Student Life

As a student in London, you can expect everything to be on a large scale. With a transport network that connects you to everywhere you want to go, and with more to see and do around London than you can ever squeeze into 3 or 4 years, your options for shopping, nightlife and trips and meals out are endless.

Cost of Living

Obviously London is super expensive but is definitely manageable on a student budget if you know where to cut costs

Public Transport

London is highly connected through very regular services on the underground, bus and overground rail networks. If using a bike to get around isn’t an option for you, we highly recommend getting a 18+ student Oyster card which will shave a bit off your (pretty hefty) transport bill.

Shopping

Top 10 free things to do in North London

1

For a bit of peace and quiet, head to the Reading Room upstairs in the Wellcome Collection, a free museum and library. It’s a brilliant (and peaceful) place to relax, read and get away from it all.

2

A spot of beauty and tranquility in North London with a boating lake, open-air theatre, a cafe and sports centre. Regent’s University is also set within its grounds.

3

Take a walk down Camden High Street to see the beginnings of the Music Walk of Fame, launched in November 2019. Get the app for an augmented reality experience of some of London’s cherished artists and music pioneers.

4

No need to travel out to the country, just visit City Farm, a 4-acre rural site with animals, providing a green and quiet oasis for people to visit and enjoy.

5

Take some time out to explore the life and inspiration of William Morris, the famous Victorian designer. The William Morris Gallery, located in Walthamstow, has several galleries to explore, as well as a shop and Tea Room, all set within a tranquil park.

6

Take a wander off the beaten path onto the raised walkway of Hampstead Pergola and explore atmospheric vine-covered pillars and trellises with wonderful views over Hampstead Heath. Prepare for some Instagram moments.

7

Explore London away from the noise and busy streets by wandering along the 9-mile-long Regent’s Canal. It stretches from Little Venice all the way to the Thames and is a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon, with so many cafes and pubs to tempt you along your way.

8

Delve into the exhibits and archives of the museum at the Royal Academy of music to see some very old instruments, or pop in when they have a free public lecture or event. You’ll find RAM in between Baker Street and Regent’s Park tube stations.

9

For a woodland adventure slightly further north, head out to Chingford station (30 mins from Liverpool St) to explore Epping Forest.

10

No list of free things to do in North London would be complete without the British Museum on it. Make the most of your free ticket and explore the exhibitions and collections on offer.

Good student diversity. I give lowest rating possible. The online website is often down. The support they give for my dyslexia is horrendous. They call me disabled. The only commination they have in Christmas time is for new appliances and nothing for students who are studying. Loads of unhealthy food options So many horrible things i cant even rember them all. They didn't even teach me the essential software for my disertation. Very very horrible university read more

I'm so highly uns...

I'm so highly unsatisfied with the management and the services provided by Grand felda. My tenancy started on 18th September 2021. Here are the reasons: 1) Managament team: There are certain people in the staff who don't know how to talk properly, thy are very rude and they start talking behind our backs to other members of the accomodation. 2)The swimming pool is closed since 4 months and it was mentioned in the contract that we're also paying for swimming pool but they have not managed it to repair. Also, the escelators, lifts stop working every week, and there is no permanent reapir of the things. The escelator literally took 3 months to be repaired, but again it stops working every week. The lifts stopped working since a month. 3) Water is a big issue in the accomodation, the hot water stops working and the management tells us to keep the shower and taps on for 30 mins only then thw hot water will come. Whenever we have work to do we have to face these issues. read more
