What makes us unique
We are the UK’s leading provider of digital and blended distance education, offering programmes in partnership with our Federation Members to 45,000 students in 190 countries. We have pioneered innovation in education since 1858.
Our vibrant global community transcends geographical, economic and social borders. We are home to the University of London Institute in Paris and have more than 120 Recognised Teaching Centres across 40 countries.
We are federation of 17 esteemed institutions - collaboration is at the heart of our ethos. Our collective community consists of 240,000 students and over 50,000 staff. Our passion for learning, sharing and connection is central to our ability to transform lives around the world.
We are a national leader in the humanities. Our School of Advanced Study is the only UK institution nationally funded by Research England to promote and facilitate humanities research. Through knowledge exchange we steer the national conversation, contributing to a growing economy and richer cultural infrastructure.
We have been committed to improving access to education since our inception. To promote equality, we challenge prejudices and maximise education for all learners. Through our strategy, we reaffirm our commitment to the values of tolerance and belonging, as we seek to combat discrimination and exclusion.
Since our establishment by royal charter in 1836, we have played a central role in shaping London’s identity as a hub of diversity, inclusion, educational excellence and innovation. No matter where our students are physically based, they reap the benefits of an education steeped in everything London stands for.
