Studying in London

However, not only is the social side of London fantastic, but so are the facilities for students. If you don’t fancy sitting in our comfortable study area in the Midtown Campus, there is a wide range of cosy coffee shops or quiet libraries that will happily accommodate students.

Here are just a few of the favourites:

Our favourite things to do in London (when we aren't studying of course!)

Southbank
This is opposite 80 Strand and has some of the most amazing views. There’s always something going on from food festivals to watching the buskers by The London Eye.

Galleries
London is full of free galleries and exhibitions - a great way to fill your time after lectures or at weekend. Somerset House, National Gallery, Hayward Gallery and Tate Modern are all within walking distance of 80 Strand.

The Porterhouse
The largest pub in London. A short walk from 80 Strand, it’s a great place to round off the week.

Borough Market
Borough Market is a unique culinary experience. Make sure to pay it a visit. It is great to just walk around (making it a free experience!) or splash out on a paella cooked right in front of you!

West End
There is one thing that you cannot experience anywhere other than London: the world famous West End. Shows can be expensive but look out for last minute tickets and students tickets to nab a bargain.

Boat Trips
There’s nothing more pleasant than cruising down the Thames on a sunny afternoon. These trips don’t have to be expensive and are a great way to see the City.

Pop up Bars and Restaurants
There’s so many different and exciting things happening in London all the time; like Pop-up bars and restaurants and so keeping track of events you want to go to is tough! I highly recommend signing up to the weekly newsletter of ‘London Pop-Ups’.

Galleries
