London is widely regarded as an energetic hub for international development, and no wonder: The cosmopolitan city is simultaneously the political, financial and — many residents would argue — cultural center of the United Kingdom.

The city boasts a vibrant international community and represents an exciting destination for international nongovernmental organizations. London’s appeal doesn’t end with international development, however. It is rich in culture, renowned for its buzzing nightlife, and is well connected to the rest of the world. It is also home to a well-established research community and globally acclaimed institutions — from the British Broadcasting Corp. to the British Museum.
