Access to the world’s leading education and research institutions.
London asserts itself as having one of the world’s largest concentrations of Universities and Higher Education Institutions.
Among the institutions in London are some of the most historic and world-famous colleges that today make up the University of London. Some of the more prominent establishments nearby include Imperial College London and the London Business School. A collection of smaller and often highly specialised universities and colleges are scattered around London, focussing on bespoke courses.
London’s scholarly reputation is not without merit. The city has a distinguished literary tradition and many fine libraries. The London Library is the UK’s leading literary institution and the world’s largest independent lending library. It offers more than one million books with a collection spanning works from the 16th century to the latest publications.
