Kensington, Wandsworth, Hammersmith, and Fulham 69.7 percent of adult obtained a degree.According to publish information London seems to be the most educated city in Europe, with inner London West areas such as Chelsea,     Christ Church College

Inner London East containing sectors such as Tower Hamlets, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Hackney, and Newham 58.3 percent of individuals with degrees.

It would appear that this is a surprise, especially when there are comments like ‘ an increasing number of students from deprived families in the Capital are going to University. I have a problem with the use of the word deprived, it is condescending, this is the 21st Century University is no longer for the privileged, elite or affluent in society. 

There are thousands of students who are acutely aware that in today’s economic climate if they are going to compete effectively in the employment market obtaining a degree is one of the best ways, at lease it gives them an edge when they are seeking a job.

The media report suggested that the information published by Eurostat, which also reported that two other European cities that are rivalling London are Oslo and South Brussels with 54 percent of their students having a degree.
