MBAs

London is among the best places in the world to study for an MBA. As well as studying in English, the recognised language of business, students are well placed to benefit from work and study opportunities in a thriving business capital. Three of the top-rated MBA schools in the world are based in London, and each of these makes full use of the capital’s diverse business community to provide work and experience for their students.
 
 

Tanaka Business School, Imperial College

Imperial College London SW7
Imperial College is Europe’s leading scientific University and has just opened the Tanaka Business School in a beautiful building on exhibition road. The Imperial MBA was already rated among the best in the country, and with the revamped faculty attracting some world-class teaching staff this MBA is surely one of the hottest qualifications in Europe. Imperial is also an excellent choice for younger students thanks to its diverse student body, handy location and full social life.
 
The Tanaka MBA leaves little time for socialising though, as this is the most intense programme in the country, cramming core work, five elective specialities and two large coursework pieces into one year. Students electing to study the long distance MBA can take their 9 modules at a more leisurely pace. This MBA typifies the clever structuring and study programmes which have won Imperial its international reputation for academic excellence.
 
 
 
 
 

Cass

106 Bunhill Row EC1Y
Cass is the business school attached to City of London, which offers an MBA course to around 100 experienced graduates each year. The course is rated among the top 50 worldwide, and the main strength is the wide network of contacts enjoyed by the school with the London Business Community. The course has a very international structure and outlook, and 65% of students are from outside the UK.
 
The Cass MBA benefits from first rate lecturers from both the academic and business worlds. The course is also flexibly structured, offering electives in Management, technology, e-commerce and finance among others. The freedom to study part-time at Cass means that many MBA students are in full time employment with corporates who are supporting their studies. For this reason the average age of an MBA student is 32, and one of the main attractions of the course is the huge pool of talent and experience in the student body.
 
  
 
 

Law

Postgraduate Law courses in the UK take two basic forms: The Legal Practice Course (LPC) which is a conversion course for solicitors and the Bar Vocational course (BVC) which trains barristers. Both courses generally take a year although many faculties allow students flexibility. Unless you have already studied law as an undergraduate, you will have to take a conversion course before beginning your vocational course.
 
London is the best place in the UK to study the law. Students in London have a huge advantage when it comes to networking for employment opportunities. The city is one of the legal centres of Europe and there are thousands of employment opportunities at major firms and smaller practices.
 
 

London Business School

Regent´s Park, NW1 
As one of the five best MBA programmes in the world, the two-year course set up by the London Business School attracts the cream of global business leaders. This is a varied and challenging course at a well-equipped and connected faculty and most applicants have the backing of a major corporation.
 
The core course lasts two years, including a 3-month placement in a London business, and an Entrepreneurship Study School. The school’s international reputation and contacts mean that MBA students have the opportunity to take part in exchange programmes with other business schools across 6 continents. Students can also study a new language to further broaden their skill base.
 
 
 

BPP

68-70 Red Lion Street WC1R
BPP’s two year LPC course is rated among the best in Europe by the Law Society. This is the place to attend to demonstrate your powers of hard work to potential employers. Although the LPC is sustained and exhausting, it serves as ideal preparation for the world of corporate law. BPP itself is a friendly, well-run establishment that provides excellent support for students.
 

 
 

City

Northampton Square EC1V
City’s LPC course, like that at BPP, is geared towards the worlds of corporate and city legal practice. The course is tough but City graduates with good scores are coveted by city firms all over the world. The BVC at City is the best in London, for two reasons: the second year is comparatively relaxed and the college’s prestige allows unrivalled networking opportunities for future barristers.
 
 
 
 

College of Law

50 Chancery Lane WC2A
The College of Law is a national institution with branches all over the UK. Although the teaching standards are not as high as at BPP or City, the size of the College of Law and its associate colleges means that students have a great deal more flexibility in choosing which aspects of the law to specialise in. The College of Law also benefits from a huge, diverse student body the majority of whom are first time students. This is the place to come for a specialist legal qualification if you are interested in a particular area outside the money-making mills of the city and industry.
 

 
 

Medical

London is one of the foremost cities in the world in which to study medicine. Despite huge pressures on the capital’s hospitals teaching standards are high – medical juniors will face huge workloads but will benefit from a wealth of diverse practical experience.
One innovation pioneered in London is the conversion of young professionals from other walks of life into doctors. The demand for doctors has led to the creation of medical study courses specifically targeted at postgraduates who have degrees in unrelated arts or science subjects. In recent years an increasing number of unfulfilled young professionals have turned away from city and commercial careers to reinvent themselves as medical doctors. These compressed courses were first introduced by King’s College and are now spreading to other medical faculties.
 
 
 

King’s College

Strand, WC2R
Imperial College London is the foremost medical training faculty in the country but for non-medical graduates wishing for a change of career, King’s is the obvious choice. The college offers a purpose built four-year conversion programme using first-rate teaching facilities in London, Kent and the Medway. The two main facilities to which students are attached are the well-loved Guy’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine.
 
The course features a one-year compression course in the first year before immediate commencement of practical studies. Clinical rotations through various specialist fields follow in the third year.Although students would naturally lack the depth of knowledge of undergraduate peers, this course is specifically tailored to ensure that they catch up and prevent them from being marginalised. Since its introduction this course has created many fine doctors and won the respect of the medical community at large.
