In a city of almost seven million people, it is hard to imagine that anyone would not be intellectually stimulated by the cultural diversity of this metropolis. London boasts a fine tradition of art and literature, a bustling commercial center, and a population from the far reaches of the globe. Today, visitors to London experience a blending of British culture and the cultures of former colonies such as India, Nigeria, and Malaysia, to name just a few. You can feast on authentic Indian cuisine followed by a rousing political discussion at a local pub any evening of the week. Regent's University London is one of the UK's most respected independent universities and one of the most internationally diverse, with students from more than 140 different countries worldwide.
