Launch your undergraduate life in London at Hult’s home campus. Hult London could not be in a more central or historic location—culture, fashion, history, and art all lie at your doorstep.
Hult looks out over one of London’s largest and most beautiful gardens—Russell Square— in Bloomsbury, the academic heart of London. Scholars and writers, poets and patrons, have long flocked to Bloomsbury for its vibrancy and seats of learning. Home to the largest concentration of universities and gardened squares in London, Bloomsbury hosts some of the world’s most extensive libraries and academic facilities, such as the British Library, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, the British Museum, and University College London.
Behind Hult’s historic Georgian exterior lies a completely contemporary interior. Renovated by the renowned architectural firm Seville Peach (which also designed Microsoft’s European headquarters), Hult’s facilities offer modern technology and amenities, as well as a spacious new student lounge and outdoor patio. Classes are held at Birkbeck, University of London, which features state-of-the-art facilities, library resources, and a sprawling campus square.
Hult’s campus is just a few short minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street—trendy thoroughfares filled with boutiques, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and bookstores. A little further afield, you will find the green of Regent’s Park and the endless amusements of Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, and Chinatown. Everything is readily accessible by foot or tube. And, you are within walking distance of St Pancras station and the Eurostar.
London is the most influential commercial city in the world, according to a recent study commissioned by MasterCard. A strong economy, vibrant financial markets, and astute government policies earned London the top spot in the Centers of Commerce Index in 2008. The fact that one-fifth of Europe’s largest companies are based in London makes this city an ideal launch pad for your studies. With five airports (and just as many premier league football teams), London is a crossroads for the world.
