London is blessed with a multitude of fitness options, from paid gyms to free fitness clubs. Options are so plentiful you’ll have no problems incorporating fitness into your lifestyle in a way which best suits you.


London is so full of culture, it’s almost overflowing. Both of our campuses are close to direct transport links into the city centre. Being a student living in London means you’ll be able to soak up all the city has to offer, from international cuisine to cultural activities, allowing you to grow on a personal level as well as academically.

But if you look a little closer you’ll see a different side to the capital… a side full of independent coffee shops, vast leafy parks and a transport system which can easily take you out of the hustle and bustle in no time.
