Schools of study
Interdisciplinary research and teaching have been major strengths at City for many years. Our new Interdisciplinary Centres aim to develop new educational offerings, professional training and development, research and knowledge transfer. Each Centre has the participation of several or even all of the academic Schools, focusing on a series of themes that will make a significant contribution to the University's strategic goals:

The library holds more than 350,000 books, 1,800 periodicals, and 100,000 volumes of journals. There is a range of electronic and online information, a law library and other specialist collections. There are also specialist site libraries for business, arts policy and nursing and midwifery.
