Initial[edit]

There should be corresponding entries for Finsbury Hall and (condemned) Notty Hall

Also, the connection to the Sadler's guild is under-developed

I was at Northampton Engineering College from October 1949 to July 1952. The school of engineering was a full time place for London University students. I see nothing associated with NEC in the article. There were a number separate Disciplines including Aeronautical, Mechanical, Electrical. The college operated during the day and there was a night school educational department, however this department was called the Polytechnic! The engineering courses were over a three period and divided into two sections: General engineering and then specialization. Like this engineers were turned out a knowledgeable in engineering, but capable in there chosen discipline. I do not like the idea, that the great time I had at NEC was to be lost, especially the idea that NEC is gone and no knows about it. I have no knowledge of the over-riding Institute, but I do remember very clearly going to NEC for three years and walking in the front door as it was then, see photo! Currently, I have returned to the ghost of NEC in terms of City University as a PhD candidate working remotely from San Diego, USA.

Bye the way: Mr Franklin was my aero lecturer and Dr.Gilles was my maths lecturer.

Muhammad Iqbal[edit]

In "Arts, science and academia" under "Notable alumni" we have Muhammad Iqbal. His article says "Sir Muhammad Iqbal [...] born (November 9, 1877 – April 21, 1938) was a Muslim poet and philosopher born in Sialkot, British India (now in Pakistan)," and until recently our short link to him said "Muhammad Iqbal - Indian Muslim poet, philosopher, and politician". However an IP and Hashamarif have recently changed it to ""Muhammad Iqbal - Pakistani Muslim poet [...]". I do see the problem but I don't see how we can describe him as Pakistani when he died in 1938 and Pakistan was born in (perhaps) 1947. I don't know the subtleties of that area and region so I'd rather discuss it here than have a revert war. Does any obvious solution present itself? Might something like this work: "Muhammad Iqbal - Muslim poet, philosopher, and politician born in present-day Pakistan". Or something?? Best wishes DBaK (talk) 17:21, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

City of London[edit]

Does it actually have any sites in the City of London? The only one this article appears to claim is Cass Business School, which is actually in the London Borough of Islington (the northern City boundary runs along Ropemaker Street and Chiswell Street, just south of its location on Bunhill Row). Are there any more? Proteus (Talk) 22:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Northampton Polytechnic[edit]

Northampton Polytechnic is one of the predecessor names of this university rather than a separate organisation. Stuartyeates (talk) 09:09, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
