    He studied in London.
    He was studied in London.

    What's the difference between these words. How to use it.

    He was studied in London. This is not as common a sentence, but means a person or people in London studied something about him.
    Maybe he (is)(was) a famous or infamous person and his life was studied in London.
    Maybe they just studied some work he did, and then the meaning really is that his work was studied in London.
