Before coming to London, I did not know much about this city. I was afraid it could have been overwhelming to live in such a big place where there is always a lot going on. After several months here, I can say that London is a very good choice for international students. If you are wondering whether you will be happy in London, this article is for you! Here are my top three reasons why students enjoy London so much.

Fun Activities in London: Take your pick

In London you can never get bored. In this city you can literally do any activity you wish. For those interested in culture, London is full of many different museums and art galleries. When studying at LSE, in the very centre of London, you can easily go on a walk and pop into a museum when you need a break from your studies. For those who are looking forward to enjoying the nightlife, the opportunities are countless. From pubs and restaurants to bars and clubs, you will be able to choose amongst many different options! Finally, for those looking for some peace and quiet, it’s always possible to go on walks in the beautiful parks around London, breathe in some fresh air, and enjoy the tranquillity.

Plenty of International Students: You’re Not Going to Feel Alone

Another reason why I think London is the perfect student city is the huge presence of international students! Since many students come from abroad to study here, they are likely to be looking for friends with whom to share the fun experience. You will never feel alone. Whenever you will feel like going to a museum, trying out a restaurant, or going to some events, you will always find other students who would love to come along!

Student Jobs: Opportunities for Everyone

In London there are many opportunities for students and graduates. Students can find jobs, internships, and part-time positions. If you’re looking to enhance your CV with work experience or hoping to find a job during the summer, London is a place with a lot to offer. Many companies often have specific programmes for university students! Also, London is also a good place for networking. When studying here, it is easier to meet other students or professionals and to go for a coffee to talk about a future job. Finally, for those looking forward to part-time jobs during their studies, restaurants, cafés and shops always have spots for young students.
