City’s international commitment

We are London's premier internationalist University for professional policy, practice and applied research, dedicated to preparing students for global careers, and working with global practitioners, research and educational partners.

At the heart of City's internationalisation strategy is the establishment and co-ordination of the World Cities World Class (WC2) University network which has been developed with the goal of bringing together top universities located in the heart of major world cities in order to address cultural, environmental and political issues of common interest to world cities and their universities.

By promoting closer interaction between universities, local government and business communities, WC2 will help to create a forum where universities can be more responsive to the needs of their stakeholders in the context of world cities.

For more information about the services for international students you can download a copy of the International Student Guide (PDF).
