The University of Portsmouth has become the latest institution to establish a presence in London with the launch of its new branch campus in Waltham Forest.

Postgraduate students will be taught from the south coast university’s Walthamstow base from February 2024, with undergraduate students joining in September 2024.

Vice-chancellor Graham Galbraith said setting up in the capital would help the university achieve its ambition to become “the top modern university in the UK, and one of the top 100 young universities in the world, by 2030”.

Several universities based in other parts of the UK have targeted London for student recruitment in recent years, particularly in rapidly regenerating east London, where the development of Stratford’s Olympic Park has opened up new opportunities for expansion.
