As one of the world’s great capitals, London is an ideal place for those who wish to study such as finance, engineering, law and the sciences as well as the medical professions. Every large company in the world has offices here, often its European or world head office, adding to the feeling of excitement and being near to the centre of the business world.
London is also the cultural capital of the UK, with all of the most important museums, libraries and art galleries as well as being the centre of theatre, cinema, fashion, design and architecture.
Multi-cultural and tolerant, it is hard to be bored here and easy to find exactly what you are looking for, whether it be an internship at a leading financial company, a foreign newspaper or simply a specific item of food.
“My time here has made me more mature in my outlook towards life in general. The teachers pay a lot of attention to details and they always give 1 00% to their students. They are always there for you when you need help, so you feel academically secure. My dream is to keep achieving and meet a lot of people and learn about life. It has been special because of the people I met from all around the world. You learn the most from them, really. They help you grow as a person and inspire you in many ways.”

“Studying here has helped me to gain discipline in my studies, whilst enabling me to develop social skills and make friends that I will see at university. Teachers are very thoughtful and kind, and they offer academic and pastoral support. I think that I have become more responsible and disciplined in my studies.”
