The University of London
The University of London was founded in 1836, consisting of 18 colleges and 9 specialised institutes, thus becoming one of the largest universities in England, as well as one of the leading universities in the world. At the UoL it is possible to learn a wide variety of academic subjects.
University of London International Foundation Programme (UoL IFP) at RBS is a unique opportunity to study a foundation course for entry into any British university, many universities in Europe, USA and Australia competing on equal terms with the graduates of British secondary schools (A-levels) and IB programmes. 
The IFP at RBS is unique in that it will be offered to exceptional candidates in parallel with their studies in a secondary school. Students will be registered with RBS as well as at the University of London. Therefore, in addition to face-to-face classes at RBS, they will have full access to the UoL online materials. They will also have opportunities to meet academics from the University of London during their studies. Thus, students will be able to receive instruction of the highest academic standard while living at home.
