In my opinion London is one of the best cities in the world, if not the best! There is so much to see and do, it really is a remarkable place. It is multicultural, busy, iconic and one of the coolest places that I have been fortunate enough to visit. Head down to Soho to listen to the latest music, Kensington for a beer in a high class bar or shop till you drop in Oxford street. Of course I love the city, that is abundantly clear, I met someone recently that chose to study in London. He was studying for a business economics degree in London, I asked him why he chose London over other places in the United Kingdom and other cities in the world, his reasons were great! Here are the main reasons why he chose to study in the capital city of England.
Fantastic academic quality
When international students are choosing a country to study in the UK is the second most popular choice. The United Kingdom has long been seen as a leader in the academic field, the quality of education has never been in doubt. You will find a lot of the country’s universities appearing in the top one hundred list in the world. If you are able to get a degree from London then it will be recognised throughout the world, it will mean that there are many doors open to you after you graduate.
Get more bang for your buck
Tuition fees in the UK are a vast amount lower than that of universities in America and Europe, one of the biggest concerns for students are the fees they will have to pay. Every student struggles with their finances so if they can get a great value place it will benefit them in the long run. So why not go to one of the leading institutions in Europe and pay less for your studies? There is no reason not to, that is what so many people choose London.
The language is universal
English is seen as the most popular language on the planet, whilst it might not be used by the majority of the world it is most definitely the language that most people choose to communicate in when talking to people from other countries. If you study in London, your English will improve no end. Employers around the world value a degree from an English speaking institution and it makes you a hell of a lot more employable as well!
