"London is known for its top Universities and cosmopolitan nature. I like to be in the city because everything I need is available. 

"The campus location is perfect due to excellent public transport links and because it's close to shops, restaurants and pubs.

"It was an overwhelming experience when I first joined my course, but people are very courteous and that helped make my transition quite smooth. I’ve experienced a great connection with a diverse group of students and my exceptional tutors. They are always there to help with personal progress and learning.

"The University is beautiful and offers an outstanding learning environment. It's a great place to develop academically and it's both professional and social. 

"The University also offers a lot of opportunities for students to get involved in various voluntary and extra-curricular activities. I cannot express enough how enjoyable my time was with the University."
