Established in 1836 as a secular alternative to Oxford and Cambridge, the only two other English universities at the time, University of London became the first to explicitly exclude religious qualification as an entry requirement. It is also the first University to give external students the opportunity to continue to earn a living while studying, and to study privately and take exams without coming to London.
Since then, University of London has expanded and modernised, becoming a pioneering institution that was the first to make higher education available to women and those unable to pursue traditional forms of study.
Today, UoL has 120,000 students on campuses in London and 50,000 in 190 countries taking UoL degrees transnationally.
