|Famous For||Second largest university in the UK|
The University of London is made up of 17 self-governing Colleges and 10 specialist research institutes. The University has a community of over 120,000 students enrolled on campus, including 55,000 students in 180 different countries studying international programmes.
The University was first established by a Royal Charter in 1836, which brought together in federation London University (now University College London) and King's College (now King's College London), to establish today's federally-structured University of London. The nine largest institutions of the University of London are:
As well as offering a world-class education the University has a range of other services on offer including a careers service, data archiving and networking, library services, conference facilities and you can even use University buildings for location filming. Though most sports teams are organised at the college level, ULU does run a number of sports clubs of its own, some of which compete in national leagues.
Most University of London Colleges have their own Halls, but others do not, so the University also has Intercollegiate Halls and students from any College can apply if they wish. The University of London housing service can assist students with University accommodation, as well the private sector.
I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
