Why Study in University of London?

The University of London (UoL), often abbreviated as Lond or occasionally Londin in post-nominals, is a federal public research university situated in London, England, United Kingdom. Initially established in 1836 through a royal charter as a degree-awarding examination board for students holding certificates from institutions like University College London and King's College London, it later adopted a federal structure with constituent colleges in 1900. Governed by the University of London Act 2018 and incorporated by its fourth royal charter in 1863, the university comprises 17 member institutions and three central academic bodies.

With approximately 48,000 distance learning external students and around 219,410 campus-based internal students, the University of London stands as the largest university in the United Kingdom by student enrollment. Member institutions, operating independently for most practical purposes, now have the right, under the 2018 Act, to seek university status without leaving the federal university. Several institutions, including Birkbeck, City, Goldsmiths', King's College London, LSE, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Queen Mary, Royal Veterinary College, Royal Holloway, SOAS, St George's, and UCL, have expressed their intent to do so.

As of 2015, the University of London boasts around 2 million alumni worldwide. Among its alumni are over 14 monarchs or royalty, more than 60 presidents or prime ministers globally (including 5 prime ministers of the United Kingdom), 2 Cabinet Secretaries of the UK, 85 Nobel laureates, 5 Fields Medallists, 4 Turing Award winners, 6 Grammy winners, 2 Oscar winners, 3 Olympic gold medalists, and the "Father of the Nation" of several countries. The university also owns the University of London Press.
