Dedicated to employability
We're 100% committed to helping our students reach their goals and succeed in their careers.

In the Daily Mail University Guide 2024, we feature in the top 20 UK universities for student support and in the top 50 UK universities for graduate salaries.
Leading the way in environmental sustainability
We've been widely recognised for our sustainability improvements.

Each and every one of them belongs here and uniquely contributes to our community and the city around them. They are The Real London. This is The Real London.
