AFS says

"Don’t worry, London students; London is far better than the terrible clubs you visited during Fresher’s Week. Away from the Tiger Tigers and Zoos there is a whole world of fantastic nightlife and student pubs in London.Even if getting stuck to the floor of The Piccadilly Institute has sworn you off of clubbing for life, the capital offers so much to do. Plus, despite its reputation and what every parent tells you, you can afford to do it all without having to sell a single one of your kidneys, trust me".
