City University London: A leading global University committed to academic excellence, focused on business and the professions and located in the heart of London. We are proud of the quality of our education, research and enterprise and are ranked within the top 2% of universities in the world.
Academic Excellence and Business and the Professions
City prides itself on its innovative approach to education. Our commitment to, and passion for, academic excellence ranks us 8th out of London universities (The Sunday Times University Guide 2011). Our courses are enriched by the research of our academic staff. Fifteen areas of academic activity were assessed as being of a quality comparable with the very best in the world in the national 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
Our concurrent focus on business and the professions provides our students with opportunities for direct interaction with future employers and makes our courses relevant, exciting and topical. Many have innovative modes of study involving placement opportunities and engagement with high-profile visiting lecturers from the professions. This complements the academic expertise offered within the University.
This unique focus on both academic excellence and business and the professions contributes to City being positioned in the top 10 in the UK for graduate employability (The Times University Guide 2011) and for starting salaries (The Sunday Times University Guide 2011).
