Often considered the home of soccer, Wembley Stadium is arguably the most iconic sports and entertainment venue in the world. Home to England's national team, its capacity peaks at 90,000, making the stadium the largest in the UK and the second largest in Europe.

The iconic stadium is based in London, so visiting students have the chance to explore this fascinating and diversity city. Home to several Premier League clubs, including UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, and Tottenham Hotspur, the only city in the country to compete with London's footballing prowess is the home of our other UK campus - Manchester. But it's not just football the city dominates - home to the 2012 Olympic Stadium, now West Ham United's ground, and Twickenham, the home of UK Rugby, London is over-brimming with sporting success.
