Our policies and practices
The University of London is recognised throughout the world as a centre of academic excellence. Our graduates make up a diverse global community. As a student of the University of London International Programmes you will undergo the same rigorous academic assessment and share the same level of qualification as all other students of the university.
- Every programme of study is developed and approved by a Lead College, or Consortia, to the same standards and requirements as would be applied in the Lead College(s);
- Learning materials are written and examinations are set and marked by academic staff employed or chosen by the Lead Colleges, who are required to apply the University’s academic standards.
The University introduces new governance arrangements
When referring to any of the historical records contained within the 'Policies and Practices' pages please note that, from 1 August 2008, new Statutes, Ordinances and Academic Regulations were introduced.
On the 1 August 2010 our name changed to University of London International Programmes; this replaced the University of London External System.
All our new materials will carry the name University of London International Programmes. The name University of London International Academy, which is the central academic body that collaborates with the Colleges of the University to offer these programmes, will mainly be used internally.
