City, University of London

Student review
By kalkonben

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.
