City of London College (CLC), established in 1979, enjoys a long tradition of providing high quality, relevant higher education provision, promoting its expectation to be a leading provider of national and international academic, vocational and professional education opportunities. Over its thirty-eight years history, CLC has offered diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses in collaboration with a range of UK universities including the London School of Economics & Political Science (University of London), Birmingham City University, and University of Greenwich.
In recognition of its efforts, the College was awarded the ‘Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2011’ (International Trade).
The College has experience of delivering higher education provision from UK and international universities under validation and partnership arrangements and continually seeks to develop new collaborative ventures.
Currently, a new purpose-built College campus is under construction in the heart of London’s business district. The premises, previously occupied by the College for a number of years, are situated close to the existing College’s temporary accommodation, and is in walking distance of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Katherine’s Dock. The site is situated in the central eastern part of the ‘City’, the centre of the UK’s international finance and commercial sector. This area houses the head offices of many of the world’s major banking institutions and insurance companies, including the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange.
