Three years ago, around 90 students were starting their Northeastern education at the London campus. This year, over 1,000 new students are moving into iQ Aldgate or Chapter Spitalfields and 624 of those students are “Global Scholars” who will continue their Northeastern journey at another campus like Boston or Oakland after they finish their time in London.

Zoya Islam is a first-year student starting her business degree at the London campus. “It was hard to pack everything for this semester into two suitcases,” she said. “There were a lot of volunteers helping us into the building.” She's familiar with the Boston campus since she grew up in the area and her dad is a Northeastern alum. “My dad loves it here,” Islam said. “We were here for a week before enrolling, so I acclimated to London.
