Why we are different

Unlike many other universities we’ve structured ours around a simple idea: that we should put knowledge into action. We want to be your useful ally, and not only as a source of excellent graduates and postgraduates but as a partner in building your organisation’s whole future. 

Our academic Faculties regularly engage with the world outside of the lecture hall. Our bioengineers design devices for hospitals, our social scientists work with charity boards and government departments on policy, our design engineers shape delivery for tomorrow, our creative industry academics are a part of the creative industries.

We’re an international university able to source knowledge and knowhow from three different global locations. And we’ve got  a formidable network of partners and collaborators to share in finding solutions that will work for your organisation.

How we help North London thrive

North London has been our home since 1874, and we’ve served communities and organisations from Brent to Tottenham throughout that time. We’re important to our immediate locality of Hendon, with 3,000 of our alumni living in Barnet. We’ve worked with organisations like NHS trusts, London boroughs and third sector organisations to make life in North London better – whether through assisting in growing cultural outreach, improving healthcare practice or finding practical technical solutions for local engineering businesses.

Our staff serve on the boards of local schools or third sector organisations. We’ve created new companies here, helped inspire young people to participate in science and technology through festivals, celebrated important events with the community around us, and helped our students help local organisations.
