Welcome to ECBM in the heart of London

Today is a typical London day: white clouds float in a blue sky, over red buses and black taxis. The roads are humming with cars and lorries, all going somewhere, and doing something for someone. The pavements are filled with a rich diversity of people: hairstyles and dress sense sometimes challenge the imagination, but lift the soul as London ‘smiles’ on its open-minded diversification. Yes London is open for business.



I grew up just a few minutes from the college, when it was an area for the poorer members of society. Our first flat had no hot water or bathroom. Opposite where I lived you can now find designer flats worth in excess of £1,000,000. Shoreditch has pulled itself up in a transformation which has been the result of courageous and far-sighted people who could see the potential of bringing in better class restaurants, bars and bistros, and who could see the appeal of living so near to the City.

And here in Shoreditch is ECBM. Solidly the building stands in Great Eastern Street, as it has for many years, and watches over the transformation of the area, the attraction of the young and fashionable, the City people, the artists, and the evolution of Shoreditch in to a brighter vibrant place. Inside the building there is continuity, as more transformation and evolution takes place, of the lives of our students, who will focus and apply themselves, open their minds, learn and understand, and rise to even brighter careers.

I realise that I don’t feel part of Shoreditch as an inhabitant anymore; too much has changed.

As an ECBM academic, sharing the transformations, being part of the evolution of our students, I would not wish to be anywhere else. Come and join us in the heart of London, here at ECBM.
