‘Studying with the University of

recommended experience.’
María Belén Bastone, Argentina
‘I would definitely recommend the University of London degrees because
they combine top-notch quality with the flexibility that comes with being
able to study from your own country in your own particular situation. I feel
my University of London degree has given, and still gives, a great advantage
at work because I learned most of the things I use on my everyday job,
and a great part of these tools were not available at local universities.’
Juan Soler, BSc Banking and Finance graduate, Uruguay
Juan studied for his University of London degree while also
doing a degree at the University of Montevideo. Partway
through his studies he gained a job at one of the top Swiss
wealth management groups, where he still works today.

The University of London –
a trusted name in global education
A degree from the University of London is a mark of excellence,
respected by employers and universities worldwide.
A history of academic excellence
The University of London is one of the oldest
and most prestigious universities in the UK.
Founded in 1836, the University of London is a
federal university, made up of 18 Colleges and
10 specialist research Institutes. Among these
Colleges are some of the best universities in
the United Kingdom, including University
College London (UCL), King’s College London
and the London School of Economics and
Political Science (LSE). In 1858, the University
of London established the University of
London International Programmes to
give students around the world access
to top British education. This makes the
International Programmes the world’s oldest
provider of distance and flexible learning.
Nobel Prize winning alumni
The International Programmes now has
over 54,000 students and 100,000 alumni
in more than 180 countries. Our alumni
include many people who have shaped the
world we live in, such as leaders of business
and industry, judges, authors, scientists
and politicians. Seven past students have
also won Nobel Prizes, including Nelson
Mandela, British economist Ronald Coase,
the eminent Caribbean writer Derek Walcott,
and Hong Kong-born Charles Kao, who is a
pioneer in the development of fibre optics.
Gain a competitive edge
Studying for a University of London degree
alongside your South American degree
allows you to get the best of both British
and local systems of education. Having
a British degree in addition to a degree
from a local university will set you apart
when applying for jobs, and give you the
knowledge and skills needed to succeed
in an increasingly global world. British
qualifications are particularly useful when
doing business with international companies.
‘Studying with the University of London
International Programmes has been an
exceptional and highly recommended
experience. It offered me the opportunity
to achieve an LLB degree while having
a job and continuing my studies to get
another degree in my own country.
During my studies, I developed analytical
skills and argumentative abilities from
a new perspective. It has been a mindopening experience for me, which
certainly enriched
me both personally
and professionally.’

was delivered by the QAA.
‘Our daughter Mariana graduated in BSc
Banking and Finance from the University
of London in 2007. She had an amazing
opportunity to study in a university
with an excellent reputation without
leaving Uruguay, our home country. It
was also a unique chance to gain deeper
knowledge in the topics that interested
her most, banking and finance, and to
complement her local studies in BSc
Economics and BSc Accounting.
Her degree from University of London
was a huge step in Mariana’s career
and opened many doors. After
graduating, she worked at Merrill
Lynch. She finished her MBA at London
Business School last year and is now
working in Brazil at McKinsey.’

is not just because of the
prestige it carries, but
because of the person
it helped me to become. Throughout
the course of my studies I was forced
to develop skills to be humble, manage
my time effectively, work independently,
and it has generally prepared me for
challenges in the legal profession.
As a result of my studies with the
University of London, I was held at
very high esteem and was able to
secure my present employment at the
Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)
Chambers. In addition, I am pursuing

(University of London) es una marca de
excelencia reconocida por organizaciones

universidad federal compuesta por 18 facultades
reconocidas y 10 institutos de investigación
especializados. Algunos de estos colegios,
como London School of Economics (LSE), King’s
College London y University College London

Opinión de un padre:
‘Nuestra hija
Mariana recibio
una titulo de
licenciado (BSc)
en Banca y
Finanzas con los
Programas Internacionales de la Universidad
de Londres en 2007. Tuvo la extraordinaria
oportunidad de estudiar en una universidad
con excelente reputación sin irse de
Uruguay, nuestro país de origen. También
fue una oportunidad única para aprender
más sobre los temas que más le interesaban,
banca y finanzas, y de complementar
sus estudios locales de Licenciatura en
Economía y Licenciatura en Contabilidad.
El título de la Universidad de Londres
fue un gran paso en su carrera
y le abrió muchas puertas.
Después de graduarse, trabajó en Merrill
Lynch. El año pasado terminó una Maestría
en Administración de Empresas (Master
in Business Administration, MBA) de
la Facultad de Negocios de Londres y
ahora trabaja en McKinsey de Brasil.’
