Bench-marking with the very best

UK tertiary education ranked #3 world-wide

Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education is proud to be affiliated with one of the very best Universities in the UK. Since its inception the Institute sought to bench-mark its teaching, and students’ attainment with the best world-wide. This vision was further accentuated in the year 2000 as the Institute was welcomed to join the University of London network of international teaching institutions. The University of London as the awarding body examines students through a common examination paper held all over the world simultaneously, that is set, administered and marked by examination boards at a member institute that provides academic direction for the particular degree.

Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education has taught just under a thousand student who have successfully graduated with the University of London at undergraduate level for degrees under the academic direction of the London School of Economics & Political Science, Royal Holloway and Goldsmiths.

This system of preparing students for externally managed examinations, guarantees parity with the international student community, and Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education students have throughout these past 18 years, achieved remarkable marks that has led to first class and second upper classifications in their undergraduate degrees.
