The University of London is truly one of the great universities of the world. A federation of 17 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. Since 1858, University of London degrees have been accessible to students all over the world through the University of London International Programmes, the longest standing flexible and distance learning programmes in the world. Over the years, many exceptional people who have studied with the University of London International Programmes have shaped our world. Former students include seven Nobel Prize winners, leaders of Commonwealth countries, government ministers, renowned authors, academics, judges and business leaders.

Academic direction for all of the courses offered through the University of London International Programmes is provided by Colleges of the University. Academics at these Colleges develop the syllabuses, prepare the study materials, and are responsible for the assessment of students. This means that students benefit from the academic rigour and leading-edge research undertaken by the Colleges. It also ensures that the standard of award made to International Programmes students is maintained at the same level as the standard of award made to students studying at one of the Colleges of the University.

The University of London International Programmes is a world renowned provider of legal education. Its LLB has long been regarded as an ‘international gold standard’ in legal education and for over 150 years it has provided the first step on a career route for many thousands of practising lawyers within the Commonwealth and around the world. Academic direction for the Undergraduate Laws Programme is provided by six University of London Colleges with Law Schools or Departments, collectively known as the Laws Consortium. The six Colleges are: Birkbeck, King’s College London, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Queen Mary, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), and UCL (University College London).

Upon successful completion of their studies, students are awarded a University of London degree or diploma. Although the standards of these awards are maintained at the same level as the standards of awards made to students studying at one of the Colleges of the University of London, the awards are distinct from degrees or other qualifications awarded by these Colleges. The certificate that students receive following graduation will state that the student was registered with the University of London and awarded a University of London degree or diploma.
