What’s it like to study a Masters in San Francisco?
The main city of San Francisco is situated on the northern point of the San Francisco Peninsula, but is also part of the wider San Francisco Bay Area. It is associated with famous developments in 20th-century history and culture, including the Beat Generation of poets and novelists and the ‘Summer of Love’ that defined popular music in the 1960s.
In keeping with this heritage, San Francisco is renowned as a liberal, multicultural and open-minded city, celebrating its LGBT community and home to a broad range of well-integrated international communities (an estimated 40% of San Francisco residents were born overseas).
Postgraduate students in San Francisco have the enviable experience of studying at some of America’s best universities whilst living in one of the most famous and vibrant cities in the modern world. San Francisco’s famous landmarks include the Golden Gate Bridge, the disused Alcatraz prison, the Chinatown region and the cable car system that helps navigate the city’s many steep hills.
The city’s strong transport links also offer the chance for resident students to visit other famous Californian cities, including San Jose, Los Angeles and Sacramento.
