City joins the University of London

Fifty years after being granted university status, City has joined the University of London.

From now on it will be known as City, University of London, and students will have access to Student Central, Senate House Library, and exchange opportunities within London.

Professor Sir Paul Curran, President of City, said: “By seizing opportunities to share resources, enthusiasm and expertise with colleagues across the University of London, we can maximise the benefits that membership will bring to City’s academic reputation, to our research, to our staff, to the student experience and to the federation as a whole.”

Like other University of London constituent colleges, City will continue to set its own admissions criteria and examinations, award its own degrees, and remain autonomous and self-governing.

It will maintain its own council, senate, students’ union and other bodies.
