Overview Of The University Of London
The University of London is a federal research university comprised of 17 independent colleges and 10 research institutes, some of which were founded in the nineteenth century. It has around 50,000 distance learning students from over 190 countries and 120,000 internal campus-based students, making it the biggest university in the UK in terms of the student population. In addition, some students pursue their education at the University of London Institute in Paris.
UoL’s member universities are self-governing, determining their admission requirements and, in certain circumstances, issuing their degrees. The Birkbeck University of London, City University of London, the Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths University of London, King’s College London, London Business School, Royal Academy of Music, SOAS University of London, London School of Economics and Political Science, and UCL are among the member institutions.
The institution was founded in 1836 as a secular alternative to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It was the first to exclude religious qualifications as a criterion for admission expressly. As a result, it was dubbed “The People’s University” in Charles Dickens’s journal All Year Round in 1858. Indeed, it was the first institution to allow foreign students to work while studying, study long-distance, and take examinations without having to go to London.
Students have access to a wide variety of services, including employment guidance and access the famed Senate House Library. This art deco structure houses one of the UK’s major academic libraries for arts, humanities, and social sciences, with over 2 million volumes and 50 special collections. Among the noteworthy alumni are Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Florence Nightingale, Tedros Adhanom, Aung San Suu Kyi, Elton John, and Mick Jagger.
- The University of London will award chosen students £9,017, which will be deposited into their tuition account and applied to fees owed.
To be qualified, you must meet all of the following requirements:
- Have been offered a place in the distance-learning MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies.

- Exhibit exceptional intellectual talent or potential in your area of study, as proven notably by prior successes.
