Living and Studying at CM

CM is situated in the heart of one of London's most culturally diverse, artistically creative and thriving areas. Brick Lane and Shoreditch is an area largely populated by up and coming artists and a new wave of design & media studios and commercial art galleries.

The area is one of the best places to go out in London, simply because there are so many different bars, pubs and clubs dotted all over this area and many of these stay open very late.

Brick Lane in east London has become famous as one of the curry centers of the city. The Lane and surrounding streets get really busy on weekends and the nightlife is diverse and caters for every taste and style.
