London is a fantastic city in which to live and study. The University is located in the London Borough of Islington, close to Central London. It is just a few minutes to the West End, Buckingham Palace and most of London's famous landmarks. However, Islington itself offers lots of amenities including theatres, pubs, cafes, shops and banks, as well as very convenient transport links. It has everything you need for an enjoyable and exciting time in London.
