It’s that time of year again – City students are leaving the nest and going off into the real world. To all those wide-eyed 2021 graduates, congratulations! It has been a pleasure to have you as part of the student body at City and we hope that you have made life-long memories of your time here.

With graduation comes a time of reflection, where you’ll suddenly wonder where all that time went. In the spirit of reminiscence, please enjoy a trip down memory lane highlighting some memorable moments at City and London from the last few years.
