Lots of opportunities for part-time work but living in London is super expensive.

student union is a bit useless but you don't need a union when you live in London + you can always go to University of London Union (ULU) Location in Somerset House is just incredible, 10 minutes from the National gallery, 20 minutes from Tate Modern, 25 minutes from British Museum... walking, and of course you have the Courtauld Gallery.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
