For more than 150 years, the University of London has been offering International Programmes to students all over the world. There are currently more than 45,000 students studying in over 180 countries.
As a family of world-class institutions, the University of London has a reputation for academic distinction in teaching and research, both in the UK and internationally. All International programmes are developed by academics within the colleges of the University of London.
The London School of Economics and Political Science is committed to widening participation in Higher Education. Since 1994, the LSE has examined and provided the academic direction and support to a wide range of degrees and diplomas and more recently the International Foundation programme offered by the University of London International Programmes, in the fields of Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences (EMFSS). There are currently over 22,000 students enrolled on the EMFSS suite of programmes.
The University of London staff deal with all student administration such as general enquiries, applications, registration and despatch of study materials.
The LSE, as a college of the University of London, is responsible for all academic aspects of the qualifications offered. What that means is that LSE academics and administrative staff develop syllabuses, write subject guides, develop online learning opportunities and materials, advise teaching institutions, grant permission to teach the Diploma and prepare and mark examinations.
University of London International Programmes 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.
IMPORTANT: Students studying University of London International Programmes are registered with the University of London and awarded a University of London degree on successful completion of their studies.
