The University of London
The University of London International Academy collaborates with 12 Colleges of the University of London to offer flexible and distance learning programmes worldwide.
The University of London is a federal university comprising 18 Colleges and a number of smaller, specialist Institutes. In the following table, the Colleges marked (*) are those which offer distance learning qualifications through the University of London International Programmes.
The academic direction of UoL programmes – including the development of
syllabuses and learning resources, as well as the assessment of International Programmes students – is the responsibility of a particular University of London College (or consortium of Colleges), known as the ‘Lead College’.
The University of London International Programmes is regularly audited by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), an independent body which safeguards the standards and quality of UK higher education. Following an institutional audit of the University of London International Programmes in May 2011, the highest judgement of ‘confidence’ was delivered by the QAA.
Since its foundation in 1895, The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has been regarded as an international centre of academic excellence and innovation in the social sciences. Its teaching and research is recognized worldwide as a benchmark of quality. Thirteen Nobel Prize winners in economics, literature and peace, some 30 past or present heads of state, and around 60 current members of the Houses of Parliament have either studied or taught at LSE.
The LSE is among the world’s most selective universities and in a number of years
has had the lowest admissions rate of any British university. The LSE is ranked 3rd overall in the Sunday Times University Guide cumulative ranking of British universities over a ten-year period (1997–2007), and 2nd in the Complete University Guide 2012.
A number of departments also ranked among the top three in subject rankings, including but not limited to Law (1st), Social Policy (1st), Philosophy (2nd), Economics (3rd), Sociology (2nd), Accounting and Finance (3rd), History (3rd), Geography (3rd). LSE graduates often score highly in the ’employment prospects’ section of guides, with students considered to have the best ‘graduate prospects’ of any British university in all 2009 Sunday Times University Guide rankings.

The school was the only one of its type to finish in the top 200 universities, and was thus stated to be the best “medium sized specialised research university” in the world. Incidentally LSE is ranked 25th globally for Reputation and often scores well in the social science specific section of the ranking. Indeed, it has never finished out of the top 5 in the world; ranking 5th,
4th, 3rd and 2nd in the last five years. LSE also appears high up in the employer review surveys and since the rankings inception, has never finished outside of the world’s top 5 universities in the eyes of employers.
The LSE has produced many notable alumni in the fields of law, economics, philosophy, business, literature and politics. To date, there have been 18 Nobel Prize winners amongst its alumni and current and former staff, more than 50 world leaders, and numerous Pulitzer Prize winners and fellows of the British Academy.
The LSE is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the
Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs, the European University Association, the G5, the Global Alliance in Management Education, the Russell Group andUniversities UK. It forms part of the ‘golden triangle’ of British universities.
