East London is famous for its street art, art galleries and fashionable coffee shops. This is part of what makes this area so attractive for students. The school and residence are also conveniently located close to the Central line, so you can hop on the Tube and you will be in Central London in less than 15 minutes. However, if you are looking for fresh air and green space, Victoria Park (one of London’s biggest) is just a five-minute walk from the school and student residence. The famous Regent’s Canal is also a fantastic place to cycle or walk – all the way to Camden Town if you wish! East London is full of things to do and see right on BSA's front door.

The student residence is in the same building as the school. It offers great value for students living upstairs. They don’t have to commute or pay for transport and they can make their own meals during the lunch break. BSA offers a range of different accommodation types, from the single and twin rooms to studio flats and dormitories. So you can find something to fit your budget.
Each week, students can spend time with each other and enjoy life in London during the Friday Social Activity. The students can meet each other and enjoy a coffee break in the common area or in the garden. BSA promotes a healthy lifestyle, and that is why BSA provides free healthy snacks and promote sports in the social activities.
Whether it’s by playing sports (such as cricket and football), enjoying a walk along the Regent’s Canal, visiting a museum, or shopping in the Old Spitalfields market, students have many opportunities to explore one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The Social Activity is always led by a teacher who guides the students and provides extra insight into London life.
At Bethnal Student Academy social life is fundamental. That is why BSA organizes free social activities every week, a Special Friday Activity once a month, and Saturday Trip every three months. All activities are led by one of the teachers. These activities allow students to make new friends with people from other classes, open their minds and practice what they have learnt during the week.
