The integrity of our qualifications

Given the investment you make in studying for your degree, you will want to be confident about the quality and standards of the qualification you will gain.​

Here are six reasons you can rely on a University of London degree studied through the University of London:

  • Our standards are consistent with best practice across the UK HE sector and the University of London award is internationally recognised and valued for its standards and reputation.
  • All our programmes are developed by a federation member of the University of London, or a consortium with representation by more than one institution. Such collaboration with our elite federation members provides excellence in learning and teaching.
  • The standards and quality of assessment and comprehensive study materials, using the latest developments in learning and teaching and distance learning pedagogy, are annually reviewed by the University of London as well as the federation member.
  • There are independent External Examiners for every programme. Their role is to ensure students have been assessed to the appropriate standard and that the UK’s overall national academic standards have been met.
  • Our focus on employability outcomes driving continuous enhancement in our student experience.
  • The implementation of our robust quality assurance framework ensures that our awards meet the Office for Students’ ongoing conditions of registration relating to quality and standards and the expectations set out in the Quality Assurance Agency’s UK Quality Code for Higher Education.
