Why study in Seattle?
1. Tackle the great outdoors
Because Seattle is so far north, the summer months mean days are naturally longer, enabling you to explore the numerous local trails, lakes and mountains surrounding the city. Nicknamed the Emerald City because of the vast swathes of green land in and around Seattle, why not plan a day trip to Mount Rainier, an active volcano just 2.5 hours from the city?
2. Visit the Space Needle and see Seattle from the sky
Seattle’s iconic Space Needle is a 605ft tall relic from the 1962 World Fair and is the most famous landmark in the city. Panoramic views allow you to take in all of Washington and its beauty.
3. Experience the rich arts and culture scene
Whether you are interested in traditional or contemporary culture, Seattle has you covered. Its music scene is famous all over the world, having produced important artists such as Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix, and the city is full of exciting galleries and museums such as the Seattle Art Museum, Foster/White Gallery and Museum of Flight.
4. Enjoy one of the major sports teams
In Seattle they take sports very seriously, and that is why fans at CenturyLink Field set a World Record for loudest crowd roar during a 2013 Seattle Seahawks game! If American Football is not your thing, why not check out Sounders FC (Soccer), the Mariners (Baseball) or the Storm (WNBA)?
5. Visit Pike Place Market
No stay in Seattle would be complete without a trip to Pike Place Market, Seattle’s original farmers market. Originally opened in 1902, you can eat, drink and find locally sourced food within the many winding and looping alleyways.
