University of London

The University of London is one of the world’s leading universities, internationally recognised for its high academic standards.

This reputation is based on the outstanding teaching and research of our 17 member institutions. All of the programmes offered through the University of London are developed by our member institutions, which are also responsible for preparing study materials and assessing the programmes (the academic direction). Wherever they are based, our students are examined to the same high standard as those studying in London.

The University of London is the world’s oldest provider of degrees through distance and flexible learning. Since Queen Victoria awarded the University of London its Royal Charter in 1858, our study programmes have been accessible to students all over the world.

Today, we have more than 50,000 students in over 180 countries, studying on 100-plus degrees, diplomas and certificates. More than 1.4 million students have registered on one of our massive online open courses (MOOCs).

Our alumni include many people who have shaped the world we live in, including leaders of business and industry, scientists and politicians. Seven past students have won Nobel Prizes, including Derek Walcott, Charles Kao and Nelson Mandela.


World-class research is at the very heart of the intellectual and academic environment fostered at the University of London. The University of London’s member institutions are responsible for the academic direction and assessment of all courses offered by the University of London. We work with leading academics at our member institutions to design original content and programmes to put you at the forefront of that field of study.
