About the University of London International Programmes
The University of London is truly one of the great 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 recognised 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. Today, the University of London International Programmes is truly international in character with over 54,000 students in more than 180 countries.
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.
In the case of undergraduate courses in Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences (EMFSS), academic direction is provided by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). LSE is a small specialist university with an international intake and a global reach. Its research and teaching span the full breadth of the social sciences, from economics, politics and law to sociology, anthropology, accounting and finance. Founded in 1895 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, LSE has an outstanding reputation not only for academic excellence, but also for extensive engagement with the worlds of government, policymaking and business.
