There is a growing trend in universities from regions around the UK to open campuses in London.
Currently offshoots of several regional UK universities can be found in London. Universities such as Glasgow Caledonian University, Coventry University and the University of East Anglia have already opened campuses in the capital.
Jane Glanville, Chief Executive of London Higher, welcomes this development, saying that the London-based campuses “add to the power of London as an international higher education destination”.
London Higher is an umbrella body representing over 40 publicly funded universities and HE colleges in London, as well as some universities with centres in London, plus a small number of private providers,
Jane Glanville explains, “In a sense, they are operating in a not dissimilar way to private providers. If you look at what the Glasgow Caledonians and so on are offering, for the most part – not solely – it is based around master’s and postgraduate (degrees) and high-level skills.”
These new London-based campuses being offered by regional UK universities are a great alternative for those students wishing to study at a postgraduate level in the capital city.
More regional institutions are expected to follow suit.
