A former Corby student has launched an online campaign urging young people from the town to study in London.

Ex-Brooke Weston student Megan Benson has started a blog, LiveLondonStudyLondon, giving out information and tips on living in the Big Smoke.

She said the main aim of the blog was to help those thinking of moving to London to study but who have very idea on what life is like in terms of finance, travel and job opportunities.

And she added: “When moving to London I found it so difficult to find information on how I was going to manage financially, how to use the travel systems and where to go to socialise on an affordable budget.

“Now, I hope to provide information from someone actually living and studying in London to help out students in Corby who may be thinking about coming here for university in the future.”
