Our London Campus is located in Central London and provides a friendly and supportive learning environment.

London is an exceptionally diverse city, where there is always something to do or a new place to visit. Our London Campus has its own Students’ Union who regularly organise events for students to take part in, and each London Campus student also has membership to International Students’ House (ISH). ISH is located near Regent’s Park and also holds regular social evenings and organises group trips.

As one of the biggest cities in Europe, London is also served by multiple airports with regular short-haul flights to the continent making it a great city to use as a base to see more of Europe. You can also travel by train to cities such as Paris and Brugge via Eurostar.

UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) requires you to have a budget of at least £1,265 per month to study in London (in addition to your tuition fees).

We understand that you need to be able to budget properly during your studies in London. To help give you an idea of costs you can expect, here are the average living costs in London:

  • Rent: £450-£550 per month
  • Food: £120 per month
  • Social life: £140 per month
  • Travel: £50 per month
  • Phone: £50 per month
  • Books and equipment: £25 per month

The above costs are a rough indication and will vary for each individual. For further information we recommend visiting studylondon.ac.uk or using the International Student Calculator.

“I chose Northumbria because the AACSB double accreditation for the Business School was attractive to me. The ability to develop my language skills was another element which I liked, I wanted to improve my English and work with a diverse group of people. I most enjoy being in an environment which is so diverse as it gives you more vocational skills. Participating in group work has encouraged me to adapt my learning style and ability to work with a wider range of people.  The teachers here are very open and encourage us to keep in touch with them regarding our work.”
