5 reasons to study in London

5 reasons to study in London

London is one of the hottest spots for students right now. If studying in one of the biggest/most popular cities in the world isn’t enough to persuade you, we thought we would compile a list of some of the top reasons why studying in London could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.

1. You’ll never be bored

If it’s the city lifestyle you’re after then London has it. There are over 7000 bars and pubs, over 5000 restaurants and incredibly for one city, over 350 music venues! Living on a student budget can be hard, especially in a big city, however there’s plenty to do when you’re watching your bank balance; think coffee shops, exercise clubs or taking time out of your busy schedule to enjoy one of the many leafy parks.

3. Get a degree from an award winning university, in an award winning city

Studying at CU London will give you the opportunity to graduate with a degree from Coventry University (winner of Modern University 2014, 2015 & 2016, as well as University of The Year 2015, see more of our awards) in a city which has won so many awards we don’t have space to list them!


4. Networking

One of the most valuable things you can collect during your time at university is contacts in your chosen field. Studying in London will give you the opportunity to meet a wide range of professionals, both on your course and in your chosen field. This will obviously require work on your side, but meeting the right contacts could boost your future career prospects.

5. It’s London!

It’s one of the finest cities in the world. People travel from the far reaches of our planet for the opportunity to visit the city, living in London is a real privilege. Need we say more?
