Royal Holloway was founded in 1886, the grand opening ceremony of which was presided over by Queen Victoria is one of the University of London's six largest Colleges and is home to about 9,000 undergraduate students from over 100 different countries. It is one of only a few colleges nationally that is allowed to use the 'Royal' title. At Royal Holloway we bring together talented students in departments where academic staff are working at the frontiers of their subjects. Through top-class research, international networks and conferences, we are advancing knowledge and serving society in many different ways. Royal Holloway is a powerful force in the region, building partnerships with the business community and playing a major role in economic success. Royal Holloway is an innovative and forward-looking place. Today the College maintains the pioneering spirit of the founders in a fast-moving world, and global network of alumni is a legacy of the wealth of opportunities this College continues to provide.
The London School of Economics and Political Science, founded in 1895 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb is one of the world's foremost centres for research and teaching in the social sciences. It is one of the UK's top academic research institutions. Sixteen Nobel Prize winners and around 30 past and present heads of state have studied at LSE.
The benefits of coming to study at LSE are obvious, but what about those students who cannot travel to London? Since 1858, the University of London of which LSE is a 'Member Institution', has provided students from all over the world with the opportunity to benefit from LSE's expertise and study for a University of London qualification without travelling to London. These programmes are developed and assessed by LSE academics. International students have the benefit of LSE's academic input, and the backing of the University of London, one of the oldest and largest universities in the United Kingdom. LSE contributes academic direction and support to a wide range of University of London degrees and diplomas that students can study with the aid of subject guides and other materials provided by LSE.
LSE is responsible for the academic aspects of the Programme qualifications in Economics, Management, Finance and Social Sciences, and the same rigorous research that influences LSE's teaching also shapes the materials sent to External students to guide them through their studies.
