The University of London was established by Royal Charter in 1836 for the public benefit and is recognised globally. The University of London is one of the largest, most diverse universities in the United Kingdom with over 120,000 students in London, and a further 50,000 studying across 180 countries for a University of London degree. The University has offered access to a wide range of academic opportunities. As a world leader in higher education, the University has pioneered change in the sector. The University of London is the first university to admit students regardless of their gender, race or religion, the first to admit women to degree programmes and, in 1865, the first to give students the opportunity to study wherever they are, providing access to higher education across the globe. For almost 200 years, the University has improved the lives of millions of people around the world through their unique approach to education, prompting Charles Dickens to term the University as the ‘People’s University’.
The University of London is a federation of 18 independent member institutions of outstanding global reputation, ranging from larger universities around the world. Students of the member institutions are also University of London students, giving them access to the University’s wide range of services in central London. The academic quality of students’ qualifications is of the very highest standard, wherever students study.
