“Some wealthy overseas students in Mayfair from the Middle East, North America, Asia and Africa can afford to pay over £2,000 per week for luxurious apartments in Mayfair,” a London property agent, Weatherell was quoted to have said back in 2015 by The National.
But London isn’t the only city with opulent properties for the well-heeled college student.
Check out these 5 luxurious student properties from all over the world:
