7 Reasons you should move to study in London TODAY
by Nina Christopoulou

London seems to be the obvious option when contemplating studying abroad, but why is it really that valued? Having spent some time in London as a student, I narrowed down why I believe that everyone should consider studying in London!

1. Unis

Couldn’t resist but begin with the basics. London has over 40 higher education institutions, amassing a total student population which exceeds 400,000. The reputation that these institutions have gained globally is by itself a substantial motive, but so is the opportunity to experience the UK educational system which – as per my experience – is unique in its approach!

2. Culture

London is promulgated as a cultural hub, not without reason! Museums, musicals, theatre, exhibitions, street installations – you name it, London has it! There are new experiences to see every month in the city that does not allow you to be bored.

3. Pubs

They are everywhere and they are definitely worth a tour! From Anchor Bankside featuring a breathtaking view of the Thames to Spaniards Inn, there is a variety for all ages and tastes. Student life anxiety is definitely tamed with a good ale in your arm!

4. Trips

Although free time as a student is subject to question, whenever you are able to find a day or two you have unlimited opportunities to take a breather! Trips are easy to make in London and more importantly, there are budget options. Whether your interest lies in exploring England or travel abroad, London is the place for you.

5. Food

A great selection of incredible tastes and authentic food from a variety of cuisines is a characteristic of the city and a must when it comes to student life. Ranging from Indian restaurants considered to offer the best of Indian cuisine, street food markets and pop-up food events, you will need discipline to not go all out!

6. Discounts

Student budgets are respected here, despite the ultimately high cost of London life. Discounts are offered to anything from your Oyster card to your much-needed Topshop shopping spree, making you feel special and deserving of little perks! So don’t forget to sign up to UniDays!

7. The Stay Club

Couldn’t finish the list without mentioning the Stay Club now, could I? If student life is to become comfortable, then this would be the place it happens! The Stay Club Cafe has got your stomach covered, the 24 hour reception is there for deliveries, your emergencies or simply to chat and the linen service caters to your laziness. So all that you need to worry about is time-management and how to become a billiard pro (yeah, we got one of those tables in our lobby – surprised?).
