The Student's Guide to London is the first-ever guidebook for anyone thinking about studying in the city that probably attracts more students than any city in the world, and it is presented in an upbeat and witty manner that students will embrace. The Student's Guide to London is divided into two parts. Part I identifies the many rewards of study in a foreign country, and helps students choose, pay for, and benefit most from their program of study. Part II identifies the best places and experiences that London has to offer for students in all of the major academic disciplines. Each chapter begins with "The London Experience," an insider's view of the relationship between the student's academic discipline and something that is quintessentially London. Literature students, for example, are guided step-by-step through parts of London that Shakespeare and Dickens knew best, places that ordinary tourists never venture. Next, "Crown Jewels" identifies the one attraction in the city that students in each field must not miss. "Cool Corners" uncovers some of the most fascinating and least known sights in London, after which "Street Study" leads students through a section of town influential on their discipline. "Immersion" affords a view of London as a Londoner would see it. In closing each chapter, "Sherlock Suggests" provides additional meaningful experiences.
