University College London

With four of London’s universities featuring in the world’s top 50^, the capital’s reputation as a revered seat of learning is well deserved, attracting students from around the world. While all of its universities are readily accessible thanks to Aldgate’s superb transport links, the area itself is in fact home to a number of highly regarded institutions – London Metropolitan University, The Hult International Business School and Queen Mary University of London.

The masterplan for the reinvention of Aldgate puts these educators at its very heart, encouraging collaboration between the area’s commercial, cultural and educational inhabitants. The result of these efforts will only serve to strengthen what Aldgate has to offer – cementing its status as one of London’s most dynamic districts.
