DREAM . TRAVEL . DISCOVER
From Shakespeare’s Globe to the British Library, London has always been one of the knowledge centres of the world, and there is no finer place to study abroad and learn about the world’s biggest companies.
Did you know that over 100,000 international students come to study abroad in London every year? That makes London the top choice for study abroad in the world. This isn’t entirely surprising, considering its world-class universities and institutions, and its history of academic excellence and scientific breakthroughs. With over 120 unique libraries (just one, the British Library, houses over 150 million books!), it’s no wonder that students flock here.
London, above all, is a city of history and culture, and students reap the benefits of over 1,000 museums and galleries in London—a large majority of which are free. And if students are in the mood to kick back and relax, there plenty of cinemas, parks, live music venues, restaurants, and over 7,000 bars and pubs!
THE BENEFITS OF OUR LONDON PROGRAMME
The core aim of the programme is to bridge the gap between education and the workplace. Whilst creative industries continue to grow, students often have a lack of knowledge on the operation and structure of the businesses in which they hope to be employed. At IEFE, we provide regular industry visits and workshops throughout the course to give students a better understanding of the creative industry and the operation of companies. We aim to develop skills and talents to empower both the students and creative industries.
In its broadest sense, IEFE’s programme will propel personal and intellectual growth. Learning in an international city encourages the expansion of horizons, increases adaptability and flexibility, and generates more creative and innovative thinking. The more knowledge one gains, the greater potential impact one can make on the world.
