The UK is one of the most popular countries to travel to for the purpose of earning an education. Generations of international students have come to the UK for their education, which means that British universities have decades of experience in working with international students. In other words, you’ll get the red carpet treatment from the time you start applying until you walk across the stage for your degree.


London has been ranked as the best student city in the world in the QS Best Student Cities 2018, making it a fantastic place to study. 17 universities from London are included in the QS World University Rankings, two of which are in the global top 10. The city’s academic prowess, world-leading resources, and incredible job opportunities make it an excellent place to launch your education and career.

If you’re planning to study here, among the city’s iconic landmarks, world-famous attractions, and innovative art and cultural scene, here’s what you can expect when living in London.

World-Class Universities

London is home to some of the most prestigious universities in the world, with Imperial and UCL currently leading the way, ranking eighth and 10th respectively in the QS World University Rankings 2019. Whether you’re looking to study medicine, humanities, or specialize in the arts, London has an abundance of world-renowned options for you to choose from.

It’s worth researching which university performs best within your chosen field, as institutions specialize in different areas. Learning from experts at the forefront of your field will provide invaluable insights and set you apart academically and professionally.


Benefit from Short and Flexible Programs

Academic programs (referred to as “courses” in London) are generally shorter in the UK than in many other countries. Students in the UK can usually earn a bachelor’s degree after three years of full-time study, and complete a master’s degree course in one year.

In contrast, it can take six to seven years to earn the same degrees in Canada and the USA. The shorter study duration helps to reduce overall tuition fees and accommodation costs, making the UK an attractive study option.


Access to the best resources in the world

As you progress through university, access to resources and research beyond your university library becomes ever more important. When it comes to accessing the best libraries, museums, and research collections the world has to offer, London delivers. Happily, the majority of them are free to use, so it couldn’t be easier to take full advantage of the incredible resources on your doorstep. Excellent places to start are the British Library and Senate House, as both also provide pretty impressive study spaces.


Amazing professional opportunities

A world-leading center of finance and commerce, London is an excellent place to secure an internship or work experience opportunity that will help to set you apart from your fellow students when it’s time to apply for jobs. Internships and part-time roles that are often only available in the capital can lead to further opportunities and offer a launchpad for your career.
