English in London

London has everything that international students could possibly want! It's a global city, always changing, always exciting.

Studying and living in London can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of your life, opening the doors to a great future.

If something is happening in art, in science, in business, in politics, in music, in industry, in high or low culture, or in life, the chances are that it is happening here in London.

Not only does London enjoy world class museums, galleries, monuments, churches, famous building, but it also has clubs, concert venues, musicals, theatres and of course shops! What's more, many of the best London attractions are completely free!

The fact that the price of the pound has fallen by about 20% since the announcement of Brexit is a boon for all visitors.
