    London. Too expensive, but offers amazing opportunities. Transport is great. Everything is amazing, but just very overpriced so that often made me struggle financially. It does push you to work hard though.

    London is a great city for the field I’m going into! It has endless opportunities where as my home city being Toledo, Ohio in the states has little to none of the live theater/film opportunities I seek. The opportunities being offered back at home are very selective. This city also is a hub for young creatives, arts, and people from different cultural backgrounds making my work be enriched from learning about different human beings experiences in this thing we call life! Because theater is the study of the human experience! I do love this city!

    Sidcup is a cute little spot. It feels quite safe and has all the essentials nearby. It also has great access to transport. I don’t feel that I am missing any excitement as I can be in central London in about 20mins. I love that there is a park nearby that I get to walk through every day on my way to campus.

    The city I'm studying in is really small so it doesn't have a nightlife and has very few shops but the transport links are really efficient and, since it's so small, it's also really safe or at least I feel safe and welcome in it.

How to study in London

As with all UK university and college applications, you need to apply through UCAS for London undergraduate programs. You can choose up to five programs to apply for, and usually need a personal statement and a reference for your application.

Postgraduate program applications are often arranged directly through a university. Each London university will have their own application process depending on your subject and program.

One of the main requirements to study in London is that you have the correct visa. When your place is secured, you’ll need to apply for your UK student visa.

Cost to study in London

Overseas students usually pay more for tuition fees in London. However, currently if you’re an EU student you pay the same fees as home students. For all other international students, fees are set by the universities and vary depending on the subject and program you’re studying. Fees for some London universities can be as high as £30,000 a year at the undergraduate level.

Before applying for programs, consider your budget and the cost of tuition at universities that appeal to you. As living costs in London are particularly high, you’ll need more money to support yourself than you would in other parts of the UK.
