If you are moving to London with an executives job, you can probably afford a house in one of Londons wealthy areas in the west, such as the artsy Notting Hill or the exclusive Knightsbridge, south of Hyde Park. However, for the median expat, who is looking for a popular yet affordable spot, Bromley is only 15 minutes from central Victoria and has ranked as one of the happiest places to live in London, according to the Office for National Statistics. Considering that it is on the Central Line and near Shoreditch nightlife, Redbridge too offers houses at a reasonable cost. If you are moving to London with your family, Sutton is an excellent place to accommodate the needs of your children with its graphic nature and some of Londons lowest crime rates.

With a wide range of accommodation offers such as university halls, private accommodation, flatshare, and homestay, students looking for a place in London will be spoiled for choice. Besides websites where you can browse through thousands of trusted properties, you can also make your preferences available to letting agents or search in your universitys forum for advertised places or other students who are looking for housemates. Regardless of your budget and priorities, we can all agree that a friendly and comfortable environment is what we have in mind when searching for a place to call home.

Finding a home in Britain’s capital can be a challenge when you are new to the city. However, there are ways of simplifying your search. London has a surface area of 1,572km² and thirty districts, which make thousands of homes available to both rent and buy.  

According to QS World University Rankings, London ranks as the best city in the world for university students thanks to its number of first-class universities, healthy job market, diversity, and quality of life. Indeed, the majority of surveyed students agreed that London offers professional networking opportunities, tolerates different cultures, and gives access to a rich cultural life thanks to its museums, theatres, and festivals. However, theres is a severe downside of studying in London, and that is the cost of living.

Expats in London stand an excellent chance to land their dream job thanks to the city’s diverse job market, which is open to people from all over the world, and thanks to global investment in growing sectors such as banking and finance, healthcare and scientific research, education, engineering, etc. However, before setting your expectations too high, remember that London is one of the most competitive cities in the world for job seekers, as it’s for many the place they wish to get established in professionally. In this article you will find detailed information about how to search for jobs in London, apply, and ace the job interview.

Shes Not from Yorkshire

10 years ago

She’s not from Yorkshire… Welcome to our blog, about life in the North of England as three sassy, tell-it-like-it-is-American women. You see, there are tons of American ladies in Britain, and we need an outlet to rant. Cry. Rave. Complain about our English in-laws, be homesick, and wonder why the kettle needs descaling so often! This is what we’re all about –discovering things about the UK and the US that would have never occurred to us if we’d never lived here. Come join in the fun!
