During the course of June we’ve been kept busy with thesis binding for students from, amongst others, the University of London (UoL). For those who don’t know, UoL itself comprises 18 well-known, self-contained and self-governing colleges, many considered universities in their own right, plus a further 10 smaller specialist institutes. Included in the long list are King’s College London (KCL, who we wrote about in April), University College London (UCL, who we also wrote about), Goldsmiths (GUL), Courtauld Institute of Art, the Institute of Education (IoE), Royal Holloway (RHUL), the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), Birbeck (BBK), The London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE), and many others too numerous to list. We’ll cover more information for some of these, individually, in future posts.
Some extremely notable individuals have been a part of UoL, either as staff or as student. Just a few examples include John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Hardy, businessman George Soros and musicians Mick Jagger and Elton John. In fact, according to one source, the full version of the very impressive list also includes 4 monarchs and 52 presidents or prime ministers although check out the full list because that really is just the tip of the iceberg.
Today some 120,000 students (approximately 5% of all UK students) study at UoL and it’s notable that an additional 54,000 students study with UoL from outside the UK; via international UoL programmes which run in 180 different countries. UoL also supplies other services outside of education including data, networking, library and careers services as well as conference facilities. The University buildings are also often used as movie locations! For more information about the University of London, click here.
During June we supplied thesis binding to students from every one of those universities, colleges and institutes specifically mentioned above plus, of course, many others from around the UK.
