What to expect from studying in London
Students are choosing to study in London for all sorts of reasons, so here are some top tips to make the most of your experience.
#1 So much to do! There are endless options for eating and nights out and idling away the weekends. Make the most of it.
#2 Get around easily. With excellent transport links right across the city, you have the opportunity to explore some varied and wonderful places, as well as being perfectly placed to travel further afield in the UK and Europe.
#3 Meet some new people. There are lots of people from lots of different places in London, so make the most of meeting people from as many different countries, cultures and backgrounds as possible. Expand your horizons as well as your taste buds!
#4 Work it. Being in the heart of one of the most influential cities in the world creates great opportunities for placements and part-time jobs. See our article on placements to find out how to nail a university placement.
#5 Expand your mind (not just in class). With wonderful opportunities for cultural engagement and an extensive supply of fascinating museums and galleries (quite a few of which are free) there is no excuse to stay at home.
#6 Keep your eye on your budget. Without doubt the main downside of studying in London is cost. With higher-than-average costs, particularly for big ticket items like accommodation, make sure you are money-savvy and have worked out all your expenses to make sure you're not stressing about money.
