IES-London:  City, University of London

City, University of London derives its name from its location. The area of London known as “the City” was, in the medieval age, the extent of London. Today, the City geographically represents only a small portion of greater London, yet its name is synonymous with the financial heart of Britain. With a resident population of about 9,000 but a daily working population of about 300,000, the economic significance of the City cannot be underestimated.
