Amity University in London
Welcome to Amity University in London
Amity University in London is a new university that was founded in 2009. It is based in Bloomsbury, central London: close to the British Museum and several other universities.
The University offers four courses accredited by Anglia Ruskin University, two of which are undergraduate courses, and two are at postgraduate level. This is ideal for anyone who would prefer to study in a close-kit group rather than in a huge campus environment.
Courses are largely business focused, and the university offers attractive tuition fees for both international and home students. Amity works in partnership with Birkbeck, University of London and makes use of their facilities to teach some courses.
Courses and fees
There are four courses on offer, two of which are undergraduate programmes, and the remaining two are postgraduate courses. The courses focus on business studies and are accredited by Anglia Ruskin University.
The university also works in partnership with Birkbeck, University of London and uses many of their facilities to teach its courses. Typical entry requirements ask for between 260 and 280 UCAS points.
The following four courses are on offer at Amity London:
- BA (Hons) Business Studies
- BSc (Hons) Computing
- Master of Business Administration
- Doctor of Philosophy
Undergraduate courses are studied for six academic terms, which is equivalent to three years of full time study. For more information on the courses on offer, visit the university's website.
International students are welcomed to study at Amity, but must have an excellent command of the English language; so therefore, if English isn't your first language, you must have a recognised qualification in it.
For 2014, the tuition fees were set at £6,000 for domestic undergraduate students and £9,000 per year for international students.
The MBA course costs £9,000 for domestic students, and £10,000 for international students, while the doctorate is £7,000 per year for home students and £9,000 per year for international students.
Amity University in London is spread over three sites in central London, all in the Bloomsbury area. All lectures and classes are held in the University of London's Birkbeck College, which has a variety of modern teaching equipment and up to date facilities.
Based in the heart of London, in Bloomsbury, the university is close to educational institutes such as the British Museum, and other universities like Birkbeck and UCL. Locations such as Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road, and King's Cross are all within walking distance, and the university has excellent transport connections with several tube stations within easy walking distance of the main campus.
Library and study facilities
Students at Amity London have access to three unique libraries. Birkbeck College's modern five-storey library is the closest, and next door to Birkbeck College is the Senate House Library.
Senate House has 3 million volumes over 15 floors, and is one of the biggest university libraries in London. A valuable research facility, the library also offers quiet study for all students.
As Amity students are also counted as Anglia Ruskin University students, they have access to that institution's Library. This includes off campus access to course relevant databases, e-books and online business journals.
There are computer facilities available at Birkbeck College's library, as well as wi-fi access so you can stay connected while studying. You will also be given access to a Moodle account which lets you submit coursework online and discuss classes with your teachers and classmates remotely. What's more, you'll be given your own netbook to use during your time at university, so you don't need to have your own laptop while studying.
There are a small selection of scholarships and bursaries on offer, giving students who excel in their studies a chance for a discount on their course. Additionally, support is available for those who come from a low-income background.
Amity London works in partnership with three private halls of residence so that students studying in the city do not have to find their own private accommodation. Rent in London can be high, so these options provide an affordable alternative to private renting and flatsharing.
Emily Bowes Court

You'll get an en-suite bedroom in a flat with shared kitchen and dining areas. Allocation of rooms in each flat takes into account preferences with regard to smoking, vegetarianism, year of study and single sex accommodation. Rent starts from £176 per week here.
An amazing central location, near Waterloo, Conway Hall is a beautiful Grade II listed building which has been converted into a modern hall of residence. Accommodation consists of shared twin-bedrooms in flats shared between 6 and10 students, with shared kitchens and comfortable living areas. Rent starts form £180 per week here.
Situated in trendy east London, Mansion Hive provides extremely modern living, with each room offering an en suite shower room, underfloor heating and flat screen TV.

The popular area of Shoreditch is just round the corner and nearby Bethnal Green Underground Station ensures excellent transport links to the centre of London.
