A university that aims at the professions
Athanasios P
Greece, Undergraduate
Overall
City University is located at the heart of london, close to the City of London financial center. City University focus on subjects that are profession based such as Business, Law, Journalism etc. It has close industry ties and graduates have one of the highest rates of employment shortly after graduation. Especially, the Cass Business School is repeatedly rated one of the top in the country. It is not a research focused university, however it recently joined the federal University of London which includes the best universities in london and some of the best in the country (LSE, UCL, King's College, Queen Mary, Birbeck etc) and thus the quality of research is expected to climb.

Overall
City's location is absolutely perfect for students who want to study in the city but cannot afford the cost of a more central location. The campus is easy to navigate around and almost all of the lecturers are friendly and approachable.

City is incredibly diverse with lots of different nationalities and religions.

Yeah, don't spend all your money on food and drink... everything's really expensive in London and I would have liked to save a lot more money... but either way, it was money well-spent.
