How we are organised and managed

The University of London International Academy is formally set up by the University of London’s Board of Trustees as a ‘Central Academic Body’ in accordance with University of London Statutes and Ordinances. It is governed by the Board of the International Academy (BUoLIA).

The International Academy works with 12 Colleges and Institutes of the University of London to offer flexible and distance learning programmes worldwide. These are delivered through the University of London International Programmes and academically managed by the Lead Colleges and Consortia.

The central University provides overarching governance through central committees, while policy implementation, administrative and developmental support for International Programmes provision is managed by the International Academy.

Our Committees

In accordance with University of London Ordinances, the Board of the International Academy has established a Finance Committee and an Academic Committee to assist the Board to undertake its functions. Due to the sensitive nature of its business, Finance Committee papers are not made public.

The Academic Committee in turn has established a number of Sub-Committees and Panels to consider specific matters in greater detail and make recommendations to the Academic Committee. For more details on the type of business considered by the Sub-Committees and Panels, please refer to the pages on the left.

Committee and Panel members come from the International Academy and our Lead Colleges, the wider education sector, and the student body. Find out more about how to become a student member.
