The Universities are excellent

It doesn't matter what your subject matter is, London has the college for you. From the London School of Economics for the more business-inclined to Brunel University for arts and media-focused students; England's capital has something for everyone.


Famous faces


The great thing about the British public is that they are not easily impressed by celebrities. This means that, unlike in the US, many celebs live their day-to-day lives without worrying about being bothered by screaming fans. 

So, if you decide to study abroad in London, don't be too surprised if you see Russel Brand in the grocery store or Hugh Grant down the pub. Speaking of which, let's talk about spouse visas... 


The romance


Every great uni experience has a great college romance and the Brits are famous for that. Just take a look at our movies; from About a Boy to Four Weddings and a Funeral; all our best flicks include great romances... and Hugh Grant! 


We are not suggesting that your college decision should be based on where you can hook-up with romantic hotties, but let's be honest, who hasn't been won over by that famous English charm – and there is plenty of it to go around in London! 


The alumni


Some very big names have walked through the halls of London's universities. For instance, John F Kennedy was a London School of Economics student, Mahatma Ghandi studied at the University College London, world-famous film director Ridley Scott studied at the Royal College of Art, while Nelson Mandela studied at the University of London. Studying in London is a path that has been trodden by some of the world's most impressive people. The above list includes just a few of them. 


The people


Londoners are famous for their diversity, music, sense of humour and politeness. Walk down any street in London, and expect to see people from all over the word. It's this cultural melting pot that truly makes London such a special place to experience – just don't forget to mind your Ps and Qs
