London welcomes new international students with the ultimate London experience

“Welcome to London – you’re going to have a fantastic time studying here!” That was the message from Deputy Mayor of London Rajesh Agrawal, at a special international student event at London’s City Hall.

At the International Student Welcome event, eleven lucky students from around the world got a whirlwind tour of some of London’s most famous sights and landmarks. The students, who have all recently started studying in London, were representing a wide range of universities and degree subjects, but were united by their excitement at the opportunities ahead. “Studying in London has always been my dream,” said Victoria from Venezuela who is studying International Preparation for Fashion at the University of the Arts London. “I have visited London a few times and I am so excited to finally be living here!”.

The group started their tour at City Hall, with its view of Tower Bridge and the City of London’s skyscrapers, before enjoying a delicious afternoon tea at Shakespeare’s Globe. The Theatre, a replica of Shakespeare’s favourite playhouse, is an amazing place to experience drama just as the Elizabethans would have done.

Then it was off for a ride in a private capsule at the Coca Cola London Eye, a breath-taking way to see London’s landmarks from a unique perspective.

The students then got to experience a thrilling speedboat tour down the Thames with Thames Jet. Everyone hung on tightly as the boat took them for a high-speed journey past the Tower of London and down to Canary Wharf and the O2 – a thousand years of London history flashed by in an exhilarating 45 minutes.

The afternoon finished at Urbanest Westminster Bridge. This private student accommodation enjoys a wonderful position overlooking the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben – a final view of London for the students to admire as they enjoyed drinks and snacks on its rooftop terrace.

“I love London,” said Ayesha from India who is studying a Masters in Business Analytics in Computer Science at UCL. “It’s been exciting to see so much of it, so quickly – every moment was amazing.”

“Being welcomed by the Deputy Mayor was amazing and inspirational,” added Shashank from India who is studying for an MBA at the University of East London. “My university has done so much to help me settle in, and now I feel really at home in London.”

Students who took part in the international student welcome event are studying at Goldsmiths, University of London, Imperial College London, King’s College London, London Metropolitan University, LSE (London School of Economics and Political Science), Middlesex University, Queen Mary University of London, Royal College of Art, UCL (University College London), University of East London and University of the Arts London.
