About University of London (UOL)

The University of London is one of the largest, most diverse universities in the UK with over 120,000 students in London, and a further 50,000 studying across 190 countries. Academic direction of programmes offered at SIM is provided by Goldsmiths, London School of Economics and Political Science and University College London.

From our first intake of 40 students in 1986, we now have over 41,000 SIM-UOL graduates ranging from foundation, undergraduate to postgraduate.

The repertoire of LSE-led programmes has also grown to include Accounting, Banking, Business Analytics, Data Science, Digital Innovation, Economics, Finance, International Relations, Politics and Management.

The BSc programmes in Computer Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Web and Mobile Development saw enrolment grow ten-fold from semester one to semester two and we are looking forward to the pioneering cohort of graduates in 2023. Also led by Goldsmiths is the suite of postgraduate certificate, diplomas and master’s in Data Science, AI and FinTech.

In 2022, students can look forward to a conversion course in accounting at master’s level and to a revamped MSc in Professional Accountancy, both of which are academically directed by University College London.
