Taiwan Taiwan flag

City, University of London welcomes applications from Taiwanese students. London is a great place for students from Taiwan to study as it is a global city with virtually every nationality represented in some way.

We are aware that there may be some confusion around the name City, University of London, as there are two universities which use this name in Chinese - City, University of London and London Metropolitan University. City, University of London - home of Cass Business School - is one of London's leading universities, achieving a silver TEF award in 2017, and ranked 10th in the UK for graduate-level jobs according to the Sunday Times University Guide.

A large number of students from all over the world study at City, University of London and we retain Highly Trusted Status with UKBA enabling us to sponsor students to study in the UK.
