Study for a University of London degree by distance and flexible learning

The University of London International Programmes allows you to gain a prestigious University of London degree without having to attend classes on campus in London. Our distance learning options give you the flexibility to fit your studies around your work and family life.

What can you study?

Many of our 5,000 students in the UK choose to study law (Bachelor of Laws and Master of Laws), and our postgraduate courses in health which are developed by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

We also offer Bachelor degrees in subjects such as economics, finance, management and social sciences, all of which are academically directed by the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Newly launched is an MSc in Professional Accountancy which enables you to complete a Master's degree and your ACCA professional accountancy qualification at the same time.

Browse over 100 courses.

Study with a local institution

As well as studying independently, you can work with a local institution that is registered with the University of London to provide teaching support and offer all the benefits of a campus learning environment.

Find a local institution.

Globally recognised qualifications

Our courses are developed by the world-renowned colleges of the University of London, which have an international reputation for the quality of their teaching and research.

Our graduates have gained jobs at top organisations, including law firms, multinational companies, and major professional services firms. Others go on to study at top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and LSE.

Student Loans

If you register on an undergraduate degree programme, diploma or certificate in Higher Education programme, you can apply for a part-time tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your registration and examination entry fees.

Starting in 2016, Master's students based in the UK will be able to apply for a postgraduate loan worth up to £10,000.

Study independently or at a local institution

In the United Kingdom, you can choose to study for our qualifications at a local independent teaching institution, or by distance learning.
