The University of London is unlike many other universities. It consists of 18 self governing Colleges and 10 smaller specialist research Institutes. In many ways the Colleges are considered universities in their own right; they set their own entrance criteria for their courses and they offer their own services to students. Some now also have their own degree awarding powers. All students from all the Colleges and Institutes are also University of London students, making them part of a community of over 120,000 students and giving them access to many services in London.
Many levels of study are covered at the University of London including foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as diplomas and research degrees. The Colleges also have a wide range of short courses and summer programmes. Pre-university school students are also able to sample University of London courses and life through the Taster Course programme.
