The University of London is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the UK. Founded in 1836, the University of London is a federal university, made up of 17 Colleges and 10 specialist research Institutes.


Study independently or, on many undergraduate courses, attend classes at a local institution, if you prefer structured study support. Classes are available on a full or part-time basis, including evening and weekend classes. It is possible to pass your examinations without attending local classes.

Our qualifications are well respected around the world, and are recognised by a wide range of universities for transfer or as the first part of 1+2 programme. This means that you study the first year of your degree outside the UK. Then, for your second and third years, you study at a College of the University of London or another university elsewhere in the UK.
