Applying for a distance learning programme

The School’s Distance Learning programmes operate through the University of London International Programmes, and applications must be made through them.

Students are registered with both the University and the School. The course design, teaching and assessment are all undertaken by School staff.

Application process

1. Choose your course at www.londoninternational.ac.uk/health and submit your online application. Please read the ‘Guidance Notes for Applications (pdf)’ before you complete your application.

2. Submit your documentary evidence. This can be done online when submitting your application or at a later stage.  Please see: www.londoninternational.ac.uk/applications-admissions/how-apply/documentary-evidence/sending-your-documents. Please do not send original documents (scanned copies are acceptable).

3. You will be notified by the University of London International Programmes whether or not you have been accepted.

4. If you have been made an offer, you will receive an email with instructions for completing your online registration.

5. Start your studies. You will be given access to the School’s online learning site (Moodle) at the beginning of October. If you have registered for a module which provides hardcopy study materials, these will be sent to your correspondence address. (Clinical Trials modules are delivered solely online via Moodle).
