Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted  university status post-1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern  universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of southwest London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.
