Founded in 1894 as the Northampton Institute on its present site and awarded full university status in 1966, we have special links with the City of London and play an active role in the business and professional life of the capital. Our Chancellor is the Lord Mayor of London and our degree ceremonies are held at the historic Guildhall. We pride ourselves on our close contacts with the leading professional institutions and with business and industry, both at home and abroad. Our professional links are reflected in our teaching and research staff. In addition to their high academic standing, many have professional qualifications and wide experience. Our success is demonstrated by our graduate employment record, which is one of the best in the country. We are also the sixth most popular university in the UK for student applications. Our reputation extends worldwide: of almost 10,000 City University London students, more than 30 per cent are international, the majority of these from outside the European Union.
