London is the most popular study destination in the world. There are many reasons for this, from our world-class universities and excellent courses on offer, to London being one of the most exciting cities to live in.
Universities in London place great emphasis on providing students with the skills and opportunities to develop successful careers. The new International Student Innovation Award is designed to recognise, celebrate and support international student talent in London.

The competition is open to all current international and European Union students studying at any of the city’s higher education institutions.
