Welcome
to City
Thank you for your interest in City, University of London. City is certainly
a special place. With skill and dedication we have, for over a century
now, used education, research and enterprise to transform the lives of our
students, our community and the world.
City is a leading global university (among the top four per cent of
universities in the world) and the only university in London to be both
committed to academic excellence and focused on business and the
professions. Ranked 18th in the UK (Guardian University Guide),
we attract around 19,000 students from more than 160 countries and
academic staff from over 75 countries.
The Complete University Guide confirms that City has the most
satisfied university students in London. Furthermore, City is
among the top 15 universities in the UK for graduate prospects
(The Times and The Sunday Times University League Table).
City, University of London is the university of the City of London.
We have strong links with the City, not least because the Lord
Mayor of London is our Rector.
We are pleased to be able to offer scholarships for academic
excellence (see page 33 for further details) and guaranteed
accommodation for all of our first year undergraduates.
City joined the University of London on 1st September 2016.
See page 37 for more details of this exciting development.
If you are interested in expanding your professional
horizons in an academically excellent environment
while studying in the heart of one of the world’s
most exciting and cosmopolitan cities, then please

As a born-and-bred northerner,
I never thought a university would
have enough potential to make
me want to move halfway across
the country. However, midway
through my second year, City has
not disappointed. I was drawn here
predominantly by the promise of a
campus in central London and the
location has been invaluable to me
during my studies in one of London’s
biggest maternity units. The diversity
of both staff and clients has helped
me to grow as a midwife more than I
could have ever imagined and I look
forward to beginning my career in
the heart of London thanks to the
