City University London is a leading international University and the only university in London to be both committed to academic excellence and focused on business and the professions.

City University London is a special place. With skill and dedication, we have been using education, research and enterprise to transform the lives of our students, our community and the world for over a hundred years.

We are proud of the quality of our education, research and enterprise and of our high rankings in recent surveys. Our University is among the top five per cent of universities in the world (Times Higher Education World Rankings 2016) and ranked the top 10 UK universities for graduate starting salaries (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DHLE), 2012-13).

Notably, the Financial Times rates our Sir John Cass Business School among the top four business schools in the UK and 18th in Europe.

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, an exercise to assess research quality at all UK higher education research institutions, rated 75.7% of City's submissions as being of world-leading 4* (23.3%) and internationally excellent 3* (52.4%) quality.

Our outlook is truly global. We welcome students, academics and professional staff from all around the world, work to international levels of research excellence and cultivate a growing network of international research partnerships.

We are located in the heart of London, within easy reach of several central Underground stations and just a few stops from the British Library and the West End. We are minutes away from the Square Mile - London's world-famous financial district - and the headquarters of financial and professional institutions, major arts complexes and media offices, teaching hospitals and specialist medical research centres.

Since our foundation over a century ago, we have always enjoyed deep-rooted links with the City of London. The Lord Mayor of London is the Chancellor of the University, students attend their graduation ceremonies within the prestigious surroundings of Guildhall and many City of London livery companies are long-standing supporters of City.
