Live and study in London - One of the world’s most exciting cities

Studying at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design in London is an exciting, engaging and uniquely enriching experience.

With its many museums, exclusive art galleries, theatres and cinemas, iconic music venues and clubs, London has something for everyone. 

And don’t forget the events!

The London Marathon, the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race, the New Year’s Eve Fireworks, Chelsea Flower Show,  Trooping of the Colour, Notting Hill Carnival, the PRIDE Parade, there's always something happening in London, so you always have plenty to do in your free time!

 

Study in one of the world’s most diverse cities

About a third of London residents were born in other countries, and more than 300 languages are spoken here. This means that wherever you’re from, you’ll be able to meet and spend time with people who are like you, and people who aren’t – making for a fantastically diverse and interesting studying, working and social life!

 

Achieve your ambitions

With an economy roughly the same size as Sweden’s, London produces more than 20% of the UK’s GDP. At the centre of world business, fashion and media, England’s capital city offers you an unparalleled variety of opportunities, giving you the greatest possible chance of achieving your ambitions.

 

Your campus

Condé Nast College is situated in a state-of-the-art building in the heart of London’s creative and cultural hub Soho. Surrounded by numerous film, fashion and media houses provides unrivalled opportunities for professional networking and cultural experiences. The College is only a 10-minute walk away from the Condé Nast International Headquarters, as well as the iconic, Vogue House, which our students visit as part of their exposure to the professional world.

 

Costs of living in London

Estimates of how much money you will need may vary considerably, as the lifestyles and circumstances of individual students differ.

For a single student studying for a full year, an estimated average would be in the region of £800-1000 per month. This should be considered only as a guide; some students may find they can live within this allowance, yet others may find it insufficient to meet their expectations.

Additional expenses:

  • We recommend student have a mac laptop for the duration of their studies with us.
  • Our degree students have an opportunity to travel to NYC for a week long educational trip, as part of their studies.
