London — Get To Know Europe's Biggest City!
London is one of the most exciting cities in which to live and work. It is a huge, multicultural, noisy metropolis that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the Brits.
Whether you're interested in music, clubbing, eating out, theater, the arts, history or sports, London has it all. From the legendary King's Road through the bustle of street markets such as Brick Lane and Portobello, to the world-famous Harrods, there is shopping to suit every style and taste.
London is a world financial and commercial center. For business, politics, media and public life, this is the center of the UK.
Living in London
London is more like a patchwork of neighborhoods, so it's an easy city to settle into and get to know despite its size and vibrancy. It is also very easy to get around thanks to an extensive public transportation system.
If a "big city" environment doesn't sound like your thing, don't worry. London is a green city. There are many spacious parks and quiet squares in its center and wide open spaces on its outskirts.
The EPA London program not only set me up with a terrific internship; they also were an active part of my experience. They took us on a Thames river cruise and a tour of Greenwich, and hosted a fantastic going away dinner at a historic London pub. I really enjoyed every aspect.

The classes at the University of Westminster are held on four different campuses. Three of the campuses are within walking distance from the EPA flats. EPA semester students take two course modules from over 700 courses available. Full details can be found by visiting www.westminster.ac.uk. Please note that modules offered at Harrow require a commute. In the summer all students take one class organized by EPA on British Culture & Politics.
We have some of the best student housing in London. A typical example is Hampden House, which is very centrally located on Weymouth Street, London W1, just north of Oxford Circus. All of the apartments that we use are near the theatres, shops and art galleries and are in one of the best areas in London.
