Fri 08 Apr 2016

There is no other city on earth quite like London. Not only is it a bustling metropolis, with a population of over 8.5 million people , it’s also a historical and cultural centre, and the home of countless world famous attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and the West End Theatre district.

For many international students, studying in London is a lifelong dream, but it can be quite difficult to achieve. Prestigious London universities can have strict admissions criteria, and expect high standards from their students. Fortunately, university pathway programs can provide a solution. From our centre at Birkbeck, ONCAMPUS students spend a year learning the English language, and academic skills to fully prepare them for progression into one of our six University of London partner colleges.
