The Postgraduate Student Experience in London
Deciding to continue your study, whether that’s a Masters degree or a PhD, is a really exciting decision. However, there’s a lot to think about - what will you specialise in? Where will you choose to study? And what sort of postgraduate accommodation will you opt for?
We might be a little biased, but we think London is the best place to study for your postgraduate qualification! There’s a high level of research and academia, a vibrant social life, and tonnes of cultural activities.
Why should you choose postgraduate study in London?
Experience the cultural diversity
One of the great things about London is its cultural diversity. You’ll meet people from all different parts of the world and learn about different cultures! There’s a fantastic international community in London so if you’re worried about feeling homesick you can be sure that you’ll meet like-minded people and maybe find friends for life.
Study on a Masters or PhD programme at a world-renowned university
London is home to some of the best universities in the world - UCL, King’s College and Imperial just to name a few. The research communities are fantastic and, no matter what subject you are studying, you can be sure that you will be surrounded by intelligent and highly passionate individuals. What better way to study!
Explore one of the most famous cities in the world
As well as being a hub for exciting academic research, London also has an international reputation for all the things there are to see and do. Hopefully you won’t be studying 24 hours a day so, in your downtime, it’s really great to be in a place that’s fun and exciting to explore. There’s no risk of you being bored in London.
What are the options for postgraduate accommodation in London?
Cheaper options may include room shares
We understand that postgraduate students are often short on money, particularly if they aren’t working alongside their studies. That’s why shared accommodation is a really good option for those on a budget! Hostel-style shared rooms are both fun and affordable - definitely an option to consider for postgraduate accommodation in London.
Studios are good for those who like privacy
However, we also know that there are some students out there who might want their privacy, particularly if they’re studying hard. That’s where studios within a student house can work really well as an accommodation option for postgraduate students.
You need to work out what’s right for you
As with any big decision, you need to work out what’s going to be best for you. Talk to friends, and perhaps people who have studied in London before, to get some valuable advice.
