University of London
The University of London is unlike many other universities. It consists of 18 independent member institutions with outstanding global reputations and several prestigious central academic bodies and activities. The Member Institutions are considered universities in their own right; they set their own entrance criteria for their courses and they offer their own services to students. Some now also have their own degree awarding powers. All students from all of the Member Institutions are also University of London students, making them part of a community of over 170,000 students and giving them access to many services in London.
Many levels of study are covered at the University of London including foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as diplomas and research degrees. The Member Institutions also have a wide range of short courses and summer programmes. Pre-university school students are also able to sample University of London courses and life through the Taster Course programme.
It is not even essential to be in London to study for a University of London degree. They currently have over 50,000 students studying in 180 different countries with the University of London International Programmes.
As well as offering a world-class education the University has a range of other services on offer including a careers service, data archiving and networking, library services, conference facilities and you can even use University buildings for location filming.See more
