Academic quality

At the University of London, we are committed to making our high quality teaching, research and flexible programmes accessible to all students. In this section, you can find out about our quality assurance and enhancement processes.

Our Access and Participation Statement, prepared in connection with the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework, highlights the variety and flexibility of courses offered to an increasingly diverse range of students who might otherwise be excluded.

Recognition, funding and audits

The University and all of the 18 member institutions are recognised to award degrees by The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. They are all funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and are all subject to audit by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

Strategic vision

Our strategic vision for 2014-2019 is to make a unique contribution to learning and research-led scholarship through our unrivalled network of member institutions, our global reach and reputation, and the breadth of our high-quality innovative academic services and infrastructure.

Collegiate Council

Within the governance structure of the University, the Collegiate Council has responsibility on behalf of the Board of Trustees, for academic strategy and policy and for the discharge of academic affairs. The Council is supported by the Academic Quality Advisory Committee, who produce the annual University Quality Overview Report. The Committee also promotes quality enhancement and shares good academic practice across the University.
