City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.

City attracts around 20,000 students (35% postgraduate level) from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.

In the last REF, City doubled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research.

Founded in 1894, City is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. 

The City Law School is the first in London and the only in the University of London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal education. It has a professional education pedigree that dates back over 160 years. The School has made significant advances in both research and education and seeks to build upon that success to become one of the UK’s leading law schools as it takes advantage of the new regulatory landscape for legal education.
