Los Angeles, often referred to as LA, is the most populated city in California, and has the second biggest population in the United States after New York, with 4.03 million people spread over 80 districts and neighborhoods. The greater urban area of Los Angeles is the largest in the US, and includes a whopping 17.8 million people, meaning students coming to study in Los Angeles will enjoy a vibrant and energetic study abroad experience.

The city of Los Angeles was first founded in 1781 by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve. 40 years later in the Mexican War of Independence, LA ended up in territory owned by Mexico. Only seven years later, in 1848, it was purchased by the United States in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and has remained a part of California ever since.

Los Angeles is known as the Entertainment Capital of the World. However, it is not only famous for its celebrities and Hollywood District; LA is also an international center for trade, technology, media, culture, science, fashion and, of course, education!

More About Studying in Los Angeles

Studying in Los Angeles is a unique learning experience in one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations and the second most visited city in the USA for international travelers. It’s easy to see why so many people travel to and study in Los Angeles each year. There are many places to explore, starting with the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, with stars paving the sidewalk in honor of people who have contributed to film, music, or the stage. The Hollywood Bowl Amphitheatre is another major attraction, a natural amphitheater in the foothills outside of Los Angeles where several legendary musicians have performed, including Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. Los Angeles has an incredible zoo and hundreds of excellent restaurants, bars and clubs. There are movie studio and television tours, Griffith Park, amusement and theme parks (including Disneyland), and the La Brea Tar Pits.

With its Mediterranean climate, Los Angeles maintains warm temperatures throughout the year which rise relatively high in the summer months. This means there is plenty of time to take a break from studying to enjoy the beautiful beaches along the coastline of southern California, including Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Laguna Beach, and Malibu.
