INTRODUCTION TO UNIVERSITY OF LONDON
University of London is truly one of the greatest universities of the world. A federation of 18 world-class Colleges and 10 specialist institutes, its reputation for high academic standards has been built on the outstanding teaching and research of its Colleges since 1836. University of London degrees are recognized internationally by governments, universities, employers and professional bodies as being of the highest academic quality.
ACCESSIBILITY TO THE WORLD
Since 1858, University of London degrees have been accessible to students all over the world through University of London International Programmes.
Today, University of London International Programmes is truly international in character with over 52,000 students in more than 190 countries.
Academic direction for all of the programmes offered through University of London International Programmes is provided by Colleges of the University.
