About Us

About this blog

This blog is written by students of the University of London International Programmes who have volunteered to share their study experiences with fellow students around the world. Our student bloggers (like our students) come from all walks of life, from a wide range of countries and are studying for a diverse range of programmes – from Caowrites studying the BA English in the USA, to Sandarenu studying the Bachelor of Laws in Sri Lanka, to Nadia taking the Masters in Public Health in South Sudan.

What these students have in common – what almost all of our students have in common – is an enthusiasm for learning, a determination to better themselves through education, and a desire to connect with others in the University’s global community. We hope you enjoy reading their blog posts!!

About the University of London International Programmes

The University of London International Programmes (formerly the University of London External System),  has been offering University of London courses via distance and flexible learning for over 150 years. Today, we have more than 54,000 students in 180 countries studying for over 100 undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications. All programmes offered by the University of London International Programmes are developed by academics within the Colleges of the University of London. The Colleges are also responsible for learning resources and assessment. This helps to ensure University of London qualifications are of the same high academic standard, however they are achieved. Our students can choose to study independently by distance learning or get additional study support from one of our network of teaching institutions.

    It still seems to me like a dream to me!A few days ago i received an e-mail stating that I had been accepted for the Economics and Management program.Everything happened so rapidly that I am still unable to believe it.I received the acceptance within a week of my application!I would like to wish everyone who is about to have a fresh head start now good luck and to those who dream of becoming a member of this community to dare to try!Our dreams will only become true if we put faith in them!

    Are there any programmes for journalism and public relations or media studies?

    Hello, where can i find more information about this program. I mean some very concrete information about the teaching and assessment. How exactly I would learn? Just distance learning (lecturing the reading list recommended), or also lectures similar to a course from an online platform such as Coursera (www.coursera.org). What kind of learning support do we receive?

  7. uolblogger says:

    Hi Alexandra,
    You can find out more information about the study method at http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/distance-and-flexible-learning/study-materials. The sort of materials available do vary from programme to programme. There are not many online lectures available. If you want specific information on a particular course, you should look at the ‘study materials’ tab on the course pages: http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/courses You can also contact our Student Advice Centre at enquiries.londoninternational.ac.uk
    Hope this helps!

    Hi Anne-Sophie,
    Sorry to hear you’ve had trouble with the application. What is your enquiry number so I can forward to the SAC to look into it?

    Hi! I am an American student hoping to transfer to UOL but I wanted to know how the system is different from the American system. Are their 2 semesters with midterm exams in the middle and final exams at the end of each? Thanks for the help!

  13. uolblogger says:

    Hi Abigail,

    Are you interested in studying on campus at one of the University of London Colleges in the UK, or with the University of London International Programmes? If the former, you should contact the College that you want to study at directly. If you want to study with the International Programmes (which allows you to study for a UoL degree in your own country), you can contact our Student Advice Centre at enquiries.londoninternational.ac.uk

    Hope this helps!

    I am a foreign student at LSE London. Because I had a problem with my UK visa, I had to come back to my country Vietnam to deal it. But when I came back Vietnam, my advisor in Lonson said that I could not continue to study in UK. And they suggested me move to the Malaysia campus.

    I tried to contact the advisor after that but there was no result. I am very confused and do not know what to do. Do you have any contact at Malaysia campus so that I can ask them about my tranfer? I want to back to my study soon.

    Please reply me.

    Best regard,
