England is an incredible location to visit, but an even better place for your international experience. Whether you are interning or studying abroad, you can never go wrong with a home base in London and the rest of England at your fingertips. While there is probably no explanation necessary, here are just a few fantastic reasons why you should complete your international experience in London, England.
You will interact with people from around the world…
London, England, is one of the most diverse cities in the world. Sitting at any restaurant throughout the city, it would not be uncommon to hear several different languages spoken while eating some seriously delicious and authentic ethnic food. In addition, there are always countless cultural events occurring, such as plays, operas, concerts, art shows, and other international attractions that draw people to London year after year.
…and gain experience in a truly global city.
Reflecting its diversity, London is also an international commercial center and the home base for many global companies. You will have the opportunity to work alongside some incredible people in your field, and the hands-on experience you gain here whether interning or studying abroad will prove to be invaluable. What better place to study British literature than in the hometown of many prominent writers, or intern in the performing arts in a city with some of the most well-known theaters in the world?
London opens the door to the rest of Europe…
The city will push you outside your comfort zone, and from there you will soar. London is a fantastic location to start out if you are hoping to explore more of Europe. Cities like Paris, Amsterdam, and Dublin are easily accessible, and budget airlines can get you everywhere else. Spend your weekends exploring the English countryside and visiting places like Bath and Stonehenge, or skip across the pond and check a few more places off your bucket list.
…but you don’t have to worry about the language barrier.
One of the best parts about interning or studying abroad in England is that despite the fact that you are gaining a world-class international experience, you do not need to worry about learning a foreign language or struggling to communicate to get by in your daily life. Not every has had the opportunity to study a foreign language, so an international experience in England offers an easy gateway into a foreign culture without the years of preparation necessary to speak a new language.
Most importantly, it will be an experience you will never forget.
London leaves an impression on you that you will never shake. From the nights spent exploring the city with new friends, to the mornings spent beating the crowds on the tube, you will always remember the phrase “please mind the gap,” the English tea in the afternoon, and the feeling of thriving on your own in one of the most incredible cities in the world. London will change you, and you know that it’s time to change your world.
