Why London is the best city for students
I know what you’re probably thinking. “Isn’t London super expensive? How could it be the best city for students?” Where’s my “campus experience?” And I understand that sentiment completely. But when I say London is the best city for students, I’m considering a wealth of factors that go beyond the cost of living. Here’s why London is the best city for students
First and foremost is the excitement that living in such a metropolitan area can have. No matter what day of the week it is, there’s something happening somewhere. And there’s something for everyone.
Into theatre? The West End is filled with shows from the silliest of musicals to the most heart-wrenching of dramas.
Love museums? London’s got a museum for everything and I can almost guarantee it’ll have free entry.
Looking for a good bite to eat? The city is filled with different cuisines from all over the world. You could find an old favourite or try something completely foreign to you.
Just want to dance? There’s a club in London for everyone and you’ll be sure to find one that suits your tastes.
London as a city has so much to offer. Being a student can be tough when you’re constantly studying and are constantly bombarded with options and distractions. But in the city, you can find something to take your mind off of the stress.
Beyond just being a centre of culture and having fun things to do, though, London can provide great career opportunities for students. In a bustling city, there are a thousand and one career paths you could take. And since London is the capital city, there are lots of big businesses that could give you your break into the industry.
Bringing it back to the cost of living, I believe that London is the best city for students because it will pay you back. Sure you might have to be skint for a while and only go to free events, but there will be plenty of free events that are just as fun as paid ones. And while being in London you’ll get to experience so much. You’ll be in a cultural centre that you can learn so much from. From the fun times to the job opportunities, London will pay you back with interest if you stick around. That’s why I believe it’s the best city for students.
