We're a cosmopolitan university with over 18,000 students drawn from over 130 countries. We've been awarded Silver for teaching excellence under the Government's Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). We are University of the Year for Graduate Employment for the second year in a row (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, 2019) and Times Higher Education's Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2016.
We're really proud to have been recognised for our focus on personalised learning, with an emphasis on how we support graduates into employment.
We've been improving the lives of students, businesses and the local community since 1892
Our mission is to be recognised as an enterprising civic university that addresses real world challenges. By 2020 we want to be London’s top modern university.
From helping young people develop their skills, to providing businesses and communities with advice and guidance, supporting our local community is at the heart of what we do.
Over the past five years we've invested over £60m in modern teaching facilities that support and develop our students throughout their studies.
