University of London

Since 1858, the University of London’s External System has offered a wide range of high quality distance learning courses to students – wherever they are in the world.

Known and respected worldwide
Over the years, many exceptional people who have studied with the University of London have shaped our world; they include people from the world of the arts (Damien Hirst and H.G. Wells) and academia (Asa Briggs), to business (George Soros), politics (John F. Kennedy and Mahatma Gandhi) and science (Alexander Graham Bell and Francis Crick). Today, our worldwide reputation continues to ensure our graduates are to be found in leading positions around the world.

Wide range of study options
Whether you want to develop your career or study for personal enrichment you can choose from a wide range of courses – from education to management, and from law to philosophy. You may also study stand-alone modules for your professional development or personal interest.

Help with making the right decision
If you have not studied for some time, not studied by flexible or distance learning, or have not previously studied for a UK qualification, the information in Study with Us is designed to help you make your decisions.

Why choose a British degree?
British higher education is world class. The excellence of the teaching and research in British universities is acknowledged worldwide.

Wherever in the world you study for your degree, if you study through the University of London External System, you will be studying for a degree which adheres to the rigorous standards set by the British government for all UK higher education.

  • The modern approach to learning on British degrees will give you an edge when you’re competing for a job and will prove to employers that you’re capable of independent thought,  self-discipline and prepared to work hard.
  • Studying in English will enable you to improve your English language skills and give you a headstart in an international career.
  • Dependable assessment methods – including unseen exams, with rigorous checks for plagiarism and cheating mean that you can be confident about the standard of your degree.
  • An  independent body – the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) safeguards the quality and standards of Higher Education and regularly audits the quality of UK universities.

Online Learning Environment
The Online Learning Environment (OLE) [which may also be referred to as the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)] can help you in your studying.

The OLE provides access to online support and collaboration between students and academics. It provides tools to deal with both the academic and administrative demands of distance learning, as well as the social aspect of learning.

You may find some of the following features in the OLE for your programme:

  • Student-student and student-tutor discussion boards
  • Contact with programme administration staff
  • Secure assignment submission and retrieval
  • Internal messaging
  • Links to external resources including the Online library

  • Audio and video resources
  • Assessment activities
