The University of London is truly one of the great universities of the world. A federation of 17 world-class Colleges and 10 specialised institutes, with a reputation for its 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 a high academic quality and standard. For 153 years, these 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. Today, the University of London International Programmes is truly international in character with over 50,000 students in more than 190 countries.
Academic direction for all of the courses offered through University of London International programmes are provided by Colleges of the University. In the case of those programmes offered at RSIC, academic direction is provided by the London School of Economics and Political Science and Royal Holloway. Academics at the Lead Colleges develop the syllabuses, prepare the study materials, and are responsible for the assessment of International Programmes students. This ensure that the standard of awards made to International Programmes students are maintained at the same level as the standards of awards made to students studying at a College of the University of London.
Students studying with the University of London International Programmes are awarded a University of London degree on successful completion of their studies. The final diploma they receive shows they were registered with the University of London and awarded a University of London degree.
