London is not the only place in UK for international students!

We know you have been dreaming of studying in London because of its rich academic history.

Every year almost 100,000 international students choose London as their dream study abroad destination.

Let me ask you a question: Why do YOU choose London every time as your dream study abroad destination? You would probably say – ‘it has every fun to offer a college goer – museums, cinema theatres, restaurants, pubs, clubs and many more’, along with its cultural and academic history.

Have you ever thought about a second option? What does that mean? Well, it means there are many places in the UK which will give you what a city life (like London) cannot.

Remember one thing ‘The UK is not just restricted to London’.

You may not like certain things about London, and when you discover that, it might be already late!

What are those things? 

Mind your dress code!

When all you want is to roam around in your relaxed pyjamas at night and enjoy the city life.

Patience in your pocket!

Needless to say, transport is way too expensive and unpredictable at times in London. You may often turn out to be late for your classes.


Yes, it is. Too many diversities = too many people. If you are a lover of silence, then London is not for you!


Giant buildings dominate every inch of the city. If you are a lover of greener land, then definitely you will be bored to live in London, devoid of activities that you like to indulge in.

Booked out!

While there are over 500 pubs and restaurants, you will find it hard to get a place in any of those.

When all you want is to go on a date somewhere or beat the stress before exams by having a drink or two, you get to hear –‘ we are booked out’!

Now let us talk about the study abroad destinations, far away from the hustle and bustle of London:
