London life

One of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, London is where students can meet people from all over the world and from all walks of life.

London: a vibrant place to study

Come and experience the thrill of living in a city that’s home to a diverse range of people, cultures and religions, where over 300 different languages are spoken.

It’s a hotspot of intellectual and cultural stimulation, with enough galleries, museums, libraries and more to keep you busy alongside your master’s programme and beyond.

It’s also the world’s leading commercial and financial centre, and one of the most populous city and metropolitan areas in Europe. In short, it’s the perfect place to further your academic or professional career – and to open your mind to new possibilities.

London also has fantastic public transport links within the city itself and with the rest of the UK, Europe and the world. As a student at Bayes, you’re perfectly placed to enjoy it all!

Welcome to London

Every year we welcome students from around 100 different countries to Bayes. To help everyone settle in and enjoy London, we organise a Welcome to London event. The day includes a body language workshop and a double-decker Routemaster bus tour of London.

There are hundreds of city guides that will give you a feel for the place, but these two are a good starting point:

London can sometimes feel as big as an entire country, yet other times as small as the smallest village. It can be both expensive and cheap. But one thing London does have and that’s everything!
