International Students in the UK
City University London is one of the most popular universities for international students already in the UK. Our location in the centre of London and the international focus of our programmes makes City a natural choice for students from across the world. Staff from the International Office regularly attend local university, college and agent events throughout the UK and are happy to provide advice about City, application procedures and all other relevant areas.
We are happy to visit local schools and colleges to meet with students and staff. If you are a careers counsellor or teacher and would be interested in a representative of City visiting your school or college, please contact the International Office

The best way to know more about City is to visit us. Throughout the year the university arranges numerous events for prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Undergraduate Open Days
We arrange Open Days for students interested in undergraduate study in September, October and June each year. Open Days provide students and their families with the best opportunity of discovering what it's like to be a student at City and are strongly recommended. Our next Open Days will be held on 6 October and 3 November 2012 from 10.00-15.00.
Postgraduate Information Evenings
The university also arranges a series of information evenings for students interested in postgraduate study at City. These sessions are arranged by each of our Schools and further information, along with a schedule of upcoming events, can be found here.
Throughout the year we also arrange Campus Tours which are designed to give students a chance to visit the university and provide an idea of the services and facilities available. Tours run regularly on Wednesdays at 14.00 during term time and are led by current City students. This is a general tour of the university and does not include specific departmental visits. If you would like to visit a specific department and/or speak to someone about particular course and admissions issues please contact the relevant department directly or, if you require additional advice, contact Sarah Cole.
Entry requirements vary from course to course with admissions decisions taken directly by Schools on an individual basis please see course pages for more information for standard entry requirements. If your qualification is not listed please contact the relevant department directly or the International Office.
City University London provides Pre-sessional English and foundation programmes that prepare international students for entry to many undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the university. These programmes are delivered through the university's joint venture at the INTO City London centre which is located in central London. Further information about the International Foundation Programme at City can be found here.
We also recognise a number of other foundation programmes offered by universities and colleges across the UK and are happy to advise on which courses are recognised by City.
Applicants will be expected to have a good Bachelor degree often in a related subject. Please contact the School offering the course you are interested in for specific grade requirements.
