City, University of London: A leading global institution committed to academic excellence, focused on business and the professions and located in the heart of London. They are proud of the quality of their education, research and enterprise and are ranked within the top 2% of universities in the world. For over a century they have differentiated themselves successfully on the basis of their focus on business and the professions and the benefits of their central London location. In recent years they have also increased the internationalisation of their students, their staff and their outlook. Their courses are popular, their graduates are highly employable and they are financially sound. However, continuing as they are will not enable them to compete consistently on the basis of quality.
It is a great university which is evidential by the recent REF scores, the fact that it is soon to be a member of the University of London group and the high graduate employment rates. The university is in a central area which is dynamic but at the same time very calm. My University experience has been very good and the university feels like a home away from home.
