Over the years, many thousands of international students have graduated from the university and gone on to pursue successful careers. Today, we are home to students from more than 162 different countries and over 45% of our student body come from outside of the UK.

Our setting provides our students with the benefits of both a large campus environment, and the countless academic and social opportunities provided by London.
