Things to Do While Studying in the U.K.

1) Discover why "he who tires of London tires of life": Spend some time soaking up the spirit of the U.K. capital -- from beautiful parks to the gratis collections of some of the world's best museums, and from the the financial skyscrapers of Canary Wharf to the alternative lifestyle of Camden and Shoreditch.

2) Explore the British countryside: Spectacular hills and glacial valleys can be found in Britain's 15 national parks and over 90,000 square miles of the most diverse landscape. Whether you choose to spend your holidays in a cottage in Devon or go cycling along the Kenneth and Avon canal, you are guaranteed beautiful scenery and the most exotic wildlife.

3) Punt in Oxford and Cambridge: Britain's oldest universities both claim to have invented "punting," the act of boating in a flat-bottomed embarkation now exclusively destined to short pleasure trips in small rivers. Whether it is in Oxford or Cambridge, a punt ride is a lovely way to learn these institutions' history while catching a glimpse of their beautiful architecture.

4) "Imagine" the Beatles in Liverpool: The connection between the legendary music band and Liverpool is so strong that a visit to this Northwest city is bound to become a Beatles' pilgrimage. Visit the Beatles Story Museum followed by some famous Beatles landmarks through the Magical Mystery Tour. Finally, stop by John Lennon's and Paul McCartney's childhood homes, and don't forget to have a last drink at the Cavern Club, where the Beatles first started.

5) Climb the three peaks: Ben Nevis in Western Scotland, Snowdown in North wales, and Scafell Pike in North-Western England make up the nation's highest peaks. Think you are fit? Join the National Three Peaks Challenge and try to conquer all three mountains in a space of 24 hours.

6) Go to a football match: As expected from a country where the first football rules were invented, and which boasts more football clubs than any other country, England is nothing less than passionate about the sport. However, football fever in the U.K. starts with the raucous fans. During your visit to grand stadiums such as Wembley, you are likely to be more entertained by the creative shouts of the famous hooligans than by the game itself.

7) Spend an afternoon at a traditional British pub: No matter the day of the week, leave work and head straight to your local pub for a pint of ale and a plate of fish and chips.

8) Tour the cathedrals: The U.K. is home to some of the most enchanting cathedrals in the world. From the Early English Gothic, to Renaissance style and the 1960s modernism, U.K. cathedrals span a millennium of diverse architectural styles.

9) Go to Paris: Let's face it, one of the perks of living in London is the proximity to the love capital of the world. Hop on the Eurostar train and you will be there in no time.

10) Attend Parliament debates: Even though tours of Big Ben (the bell that chimes every hour within the Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster) are restricted to U.K. permanent residents, everyone can attend Parliament debates free of charge. If you are lucky, you can get tickets to Question Time to see how the Prime Minister is grilled with questions in the Commons.
