About City University of London and Scholarship
The Northampton Institute and the City Law School, which opened its doors in 1852, are where City got its start. The first was named for the Marquess of Northampton, who provided the property in Islington between Northampton Square and St. John Street on which the institute was constructed. The institution was founded to support the community’s welfare and educational needs. Aiming to “promote the industrial skill, general knowledge, health, and well-being of young men and women belonging to the poorer classes,” it was established under the City of London Parochial Charities Act (1883).
In 1894, the Northampton Polytechnic Institute was established in Clerkenwell, London. Robert Mullineux Walmsley served as the school’s first principal. Colin Cherry, Stuart Davies, and Anthony Hunt are alumni. Arthur George Cocksedge, a British gymnast who participated in the 1920 Summer Olympics, belonged to the gymnastics club at Northampton Polytechnic Institute and won the 1920 British Championship. The 1937 ABA Middleweight Champion was Maurice Dennis of the Northampton Polytechnic ABC. The institute’s aeronautics instructor was Frederick Handley Page. His first powered aircraft, the Handley Page Type A, was converted into an instructional airframe for the school. Eric Ambler, a novelist, attended the university to study engineering.
Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering, Artistic Crafts, Domestic Economy, and Women’s Trades, Electro-Chemistry, Horology (the science of time and the art of clockmaking), Mechanical Engineering and Metal Trades, and Horology were the six founding departments of the institute.
