Universities in North West London
||London as a whole
draws in people from all over the country and the world
to study in one of the area’s many educational
institutions, including those in north west London.
Students who find that their studies bring them to northwest
London are probably well on their way in their chosen
career path as the educational institutions here tend
to be focused on one area of study.
The Royal College of Physicians [map] based near Regent's Park is the oldest medical institution
in England. As a centre for the profession is not only
where physicians go to take medical exams but also has
a proactive purpose of promoting high standards in medicine
The Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecologists [map] was established after the Royal College of Physicians
when the practices involved in giving birth were recognised
as a speciality in their own right. From its creation
in 1929 the care of women and children during birth improved
and today the Royal College continues to advance the profession.
Juxtaposed against these historic medical centres of education
the London Business School [map] also inhabits NW1, near Regent’s Park.
At less than 50 years old this is still quite a young
institution, however its reputation as a first class international
school of business is well established with a significant
proportion of staff, students and industry connections
coming from overseas.
As a centre for excellence in its field, the Royal
Veterinary College [map] is one of the leading animal care schools in the country
both in terms of teaching and research. The College is
spread over two campuses, one in Camden and the other
outside the capital in Herefordshire.
Students at the Royal Veterinary College are part of the
Britain’s largest university, the University
of London [map] (UOL). Founded in 1829 the university was the first college
outside of Oxford and Cambridge, and the first to admit
students regardless of age, race or religion, setting
the standard for its international flavour. Today the
university has more than 90,000 students at campuses across
North west of the city is also home to the London centre
of the Open University [map],
where you can go for advice, information and training.
