One of the world's greatest knowledge capitals, London boasts a wealth of internationally renowned facilities such as libraries and museums available to students. Culturally, the city is an international centre for film, music, sport, nightlife, theatre, fashion and art.
London's many districts, each with their own distinctive character, provide opportunities for an extraordinary range of social and cultural experiences. Covent Garden, South Bank, Soho, and Westminster are all within easy reach of the University. Even closer to the campus, students will find a wide variety of places of interest, shopping areas, bars and restaurants, many ideally suited for students on a tight budget.
The climate of London is temperate, with modest daily high temperatures during summer (apart from the odd heat wave) and winter lows that seldom fall below freezing.
Rainfall is fairly regular, but most often in the form of drizzle, occurring throughout the year. Snow occurs sometimes in winter but rarely settles more than a few millimetres deep.
