What does it mean?

City was admitted as a College of the federal University of London in September 2016. The Privy Council agreed a supplemental Charter which changed City's name and the titles of its senior officers, reflecting that City has ceased to be a university and has become an autonomous College within the UOL federation.

The new name is 'City, University of London'.

Watch this video of our staff and students explaining what this means to them:

For students who began their studies in September 2015, this means that at the beginning of their second year of study, City is a formal part of UOL. City's new name will appear on certificates for degrees awarded after 1st September 2016.

The UOL Implementation Project Steering Group, led by Professor Richard Verrall, has been overseeing the implementation process and keeping students, staff and alumni informed of progress. We would encourage any students with any questions about the student experience to contact our external enquiries team.
