Although it’s a tourist attraction, Brighton Pier is a favourite of students living in the city. As seaside town piers go, Brighton is up there with the best. As well as theme park rides and amusements (your typical English getaway stuff), the pier has some awesome food-to-go, including of course fish & chips, and a pretty great social scene. The pier has regular events and has three bars that play live music and gigs as well as playing live sports matches- and being over the sea makes it a really cool place to hang out.
Brighton also has fantastic night-life all over the city that attracts every kind of party lover. The bars and clubs vary in taste from hardcore house, to electric dance, Latin beats and of course cheesy pop. But what attracts people from all over the world to Brighton is it’s incredible, thriving gay scene. Some of Europe’s best gay bars and clubs are in Brighton and are celebrated by it’s residents- both gay and straight as they’re just so much fun! The city has some fantastic annual events too, running one of the UK’s favourite Pride festivals, as well as The Carnival of Diversity and lots of popular music festivals.
Another one of the best things about Brighton that makes it a favourite above other UK cities for international students is that they can enjoy the beach life. When the endless amounts of greenery and parks don’t cut it, you can relax, study or hang out with friends on the beach. Best of all, the seafront has free WiFi access! Even when the English weather is living up to its reputation, the beach has an attractive promenade with shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to chill out at overlooking the beach. In the nicer seasons you could also try your hand out at some cool beach and water sports like volleyball, sailing, wakeboarding or surfing, which are all really popular with the locals.

Overall it was a great experience I had in London and I am very grateful for the service provided by Polar Choice, I can absolutely recommend this company.
I had a great time in London studying with the English Studio and I would recommend the school to any of my friends. I got great advice from Polar Choice and I was able to find a course that fitted my budget.
I was very concerned about coming to London initially but Paula from Polar Choice was amazing she helped me pick the right course with Avalon school of English and made sure I was fully informed during the application process her expertise on Visa's was essential and I am so happy I booked with polar Choice.
