  • It is important to remember that students studying University of London International Programmes are registered with the University of London and are awarded a University of London degree on successful completion of their studies. Although the study experience is different, degrees awarded to International programmes students are of a comparable standard to those awarded to students who study on campus at the LSE. The certificate awarded indicates that the successful student was examined by the LSE.
