AeU’s relationship with the University of London (UoL)

Being granted Recognised Teaching Centre status by the University of London, AeU demonstrates a sustained commitment to developing excellence in respect of teaching, support to students and administrative processes.

University of London (UoL)

An award from the University of London is a mark of excellence, respected by employers and universities worldwide. The University of London is one of the world’s leading universities, internationally recognised for its high academic standards. This reputation is based on the outstanding teaching and research of its 17 world-class member institutions and nine specialist institutes.

The University of London was established in 1836 and the signing of the fourth Charter by Queen Victoria in 1858 opened up University of London awards to all those who could fulfil the entry requirements. Consequently, since 1858, University of London qualifications have been accessible to students all over the world through online, blended and flexible learning.
