City University was founded in 1894 as the Northampton Institute, and has come a long way since then. Today, City’s research covers areas as diverse as compressor technology, climate change, optometry, data visualisation and economic theory.

Few universities are as deeply embedded in business and the professions as City, and organisations can benefit from a comprehensive range of business services: from student placements and internships to collaborative research including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, consultancy and commercialisation to Continuing Professional Development, Executive Education and short courses.

Start-ups and small enterprises can take advantage of City’s incubation support programmes or benefit from co-working space in the heart of Tech City. Students and graduates learn vital professional and entrepreneurial skills during their time at the University, ready to join employers large and small.
