Come to City and experience the buzz of living right in the heart of one of Europe's most vibrant cities. Everything is on your doorstep; London is your campus.
London has been placed second in the QS Top Universities Best Student Cities in the World 2012. Alongside London's "world-class facilities" and links with business and the professions, the city was also commended as "a mind-boggling cultural confluence". As QS states: "there aren't many things that you could hanker for as a student that aren't on offer in abundance in London."
- Live in the centre of London. The University is located in central London. It's close to several Underground lines so it's easy to travel around. You're just a few stops away from London's West End, including Oxford Street and Covent Garden. Plus, students get a 30% discount on the cost of a weekly travelcard.
- Try something new. When you're living away from home for the first time, it's the perfect time to try new things. How about taking up a new sport or becoming a community volunteer?
- See art, music, theatre and dance. Every week you can find thousands of exciting cultural events across London - and many give student discounts. Try Tate Modern, the Royal Festival Hall, the National Theatre, Sadler's Wells and many more world class cultural venues.
- Explore the world's knowledge. The British Library has 14 million books, 920,000 journal and newspaper titles and three million sound recordings. Students can access this extraordinary collection once they have a free Reader Pass. And it's just two Underground stops from City (Angel to Euston on the Northern Line).
- Get free entry to museums. The permanent exhibitions of some of Britain's best-known and best-loved museums are free for anyone to see. Don't miss The British Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and The Science Museum.
- Discover London nightlife. London nightlife is famous the world over. On any night of the week you'll find a huge range of events, many of which are free or discounted for students.
- Take a walk in the park. London has over 3,000 parks and open spaces, making it one of the greenest capitals in the world. Try the outdoor sports areas and open air theatre at Regent's Park, row a boat on the Serpentine lake in Hyde Park, or enjoy one of the best views of London from Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath.
- Connect with London business. London is a major international hub for a wide range of industries - including finance, creative and media. The University's location and links with the City of London make it the perfect place not only to study, but to build networks which will carry you through your career.
