The University of London


With 90,000 students studying an all-inclusive variety of subjects on 19 self-governing campuses, the University of London is a fascinating institution of higher learning.  One of the campuses, The London School of Economics and Political Science, is located close to London’s theatre district, and is recognized as a world leader in the study of Economics and Political Science.  LSE experiences a high volume of applicants from North America, including several each year from SMUS.  Photo:  Clare Market, LSE.

Just down the Strand from LSE and on the banks of the Thames, we find another of the University of London colleges, – King’s College.  Once you’re off the busy street and into the buildings and interior courtyard spaces, KCL is strikingly beautiful.  With the largest combined medical, dental, and nursing program in Europe and a wide offering of degree programs across both traditional and new disciplines, King’s is well placed to offer undergraduates a challenging and stimulating environment.  Photo taken from KCL.  The London Eye in the background.

From KCL, it’s a pleasant walk up Bow Street or Drury Lane to Bloomsbury Street and the University College of London.  Placed very high in world rankings, UCL offers world-renowned degrees in biomedical science, architecture and fine art.  UCL is one of London’s largest multidisciplinary universities, with 22,000 students. Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body.
