Comments from City, University of London


Professor Sir Paul Curran

President of City, University of London

"Joining the University of London marks a significant new chapter in City’s history. It is a major opportunity but also a signal of how far City has come as an institution. We will retain our historic strengths, professional credibility and deep-rooted City of London heritage while we strengthen our international profile and expand our research and academic capabilities.”

"Before we joined the University of London, City had to stand alone and think in a proactive way about the challenges presented by an increasingly competitive environment. We hope to bring some of these insights to the federation, while experiencing the benefits of a strong central brand that works in synchrony with its Colleges."

"1st September 2016 will mark the date we officially joined the University of London, but also the beginning of additional opportunities within our competitive sporting programme. As many will know, City students will be able to join University of London sports clubs, train at their facilities and still represent City in competitions. In particular, we will see facilities and world-leading coaching offered through these clubs. While City already boasts a sector-leading sports facility in CitySport, I can only imagine what the next few years hold in store for our student athletes."
