As one of the world’s leading business centres many students come to London to study business related degrees. The capital is also renowned for the quality of its legal studies and the subsequent employment opportunities for graduates, with four of the world’s six largest law firms being based in London. Thousands of others come to study medicine at one of the capital’s five world-class medical schools.

The Mayor said: “London’s overseas students make a fantastic and valuable contribution to the diversity and vibrancy of life in our great city not to mention the support they give to our economy. There’s really no better choice with so many study options and a great social and leisure scene to enjoy. London is one of the few places where you can establish a global network of friends and colleagues and we are investing heavily in huge projects like the 2012 Games to make it an even greater city to live and work in over the coming decades.”
