It is not news that a high-quality university degree can help immensely in advancing one’s career. And if that degree is from an institution as prominent as the University of London (UoL), it holds even more value across the world. This is not just a fleeting attribution; there have been surveys to prove this claim.
In 2018, the University of London conducted a survey to measure the rate of successful employment owing to its degree. Unsurprisingly, 82% of students from the batch of 2017 had gained permanent employment. About 77% of students also said that they either got a job that quite fit the idea of their perfect job or at least was a great stepping stone towards it. This proves that the degree, inevitably, adds to the employability of graduates, giving them a competitive edge over other candidates. 9 out of 10 alumni shared that they will definitely recommend the degree to their peers, due to its highly experiential nature of education.
Apart from the high success rate in terms of employment, there are several other important reasons why a UoL degree helps one get ahead in one’s professional life.

A Globally Recognised Degree
The brand value of a UoL degree is acknowledged around the globe. Corporations across sectors and geographies know the kind of learning that the university offers and the rigorous standards to which students’ learning outcomes are held. The pedagogy promotes pragmatic learning, enabling students to graduate as independent thinkers equipped to solve real-world problems. While this provides great learning for inexperienced learners, the benefits of a UoL education are equally experienced by professionals who have worked for several years.
An Extensive Network
The University of London has an extensive network of alumni who are working at some of the most prominent companies around the world. This means that new UoL graduates stand a great chance of gaining trust from prospective employers. The educators at UoL are themselves part of a rich network, which they are happy to connect the students to, to help them begin their career either with an internship or a training programme at organisations which provide steep learning curves.
An attractive benefit of a UoL degree is that it inevitably leads to a high-paying job. Since most students are recruited by top-notch companies on account of the value of their degree and the premium placed on their learning outcomes, they are able to earn considerably higher compensation compared with students from other institutions.
As appealing as the rewards sound, being accepted into a UoL programme can be a challenge, considering how competitive the process is. Even though this education has been made accessible by UoL around the world through its Recognised Teaching Centres, its quality remains undiluted, and students entering this programme must be prepared to work hard in order to reap the ensuing rewards.
If you are an Indian student aspiring to get a UoL degree, the Indian School of Business and Finance (ISBF) gives you that opportunity without having to leave your country. Since 2009, ISBF has enjoyed the highest level of recognition accorded by UoL to its Teaching Centres, and has maintained it on the basis of stringent and continuous quality assessment.

ISBF students thus have the unique opportunity to obtain a world-class education right here in India; the same education that has produced some of the most distinguished luminaries of recent times. All ISBF students enrol as full-fledged students of UoL. Upon successfully completing the programme, they receive a degree from the University of London and are even invited to be graduated at the final UoL convocation in London.
