The University of London has announced that Wendy Thomson is to become its next vice-chancellor from July 2019.

Thomson, who is currently managing director of Norfolk County Council, will replace Adrian Smith, who stepped down in August—after six years in the job—to become director of the Alan Turing Institute. In the interim, Peter Kopelman will continue as acting vice-chancellor.

“It is an honour and a privilege to become the University of London’s next vice-chancellor,” said Thomson, who is also a professor in the School of Social Work at McGill University. “My predecessor, Sir Adrian Smith, and his team have transformed the university in recent years and I very much look forward to building on this solid foundation as well as supporting the university’s independent member institutions in the years ahead.”
