Becoming a Recognised Teaching Centre

The University of London has a Network of over 100 Recognised Teaching Centres in different countries all over the world.

If you are interested in supporting our students, or would like to have your existing support more formally recognised we encourage you to look at The Becoming a Recognised Teaching Centre [PDF] which provides you with further information and details on how the University considers institutions for recognition.

Teaching Centre Recognition Framework

Our Teaching Centre Recognition Framework is a mechanism for formally recognising teaching centres offering support for the University’s programmes.

Recognised Teaching Centres must demonstrate that they meet a set of quality criteria in order to be granted, and subsequently maintain, Recognised Teaching Centre status.

Recognised Teaching Centres must demonstrate that they meet these criteria by providing appropriate evidence, and the University monitors Recognised Teaching Centres against these criteria.
