Delivering Educational Excellence Beyond Borders to 170,000 Students

Because students are remote they don’t necessarily have that sense of community and belonging. With the easy to use Liferay portal, we are seeing more and more students engaging with us in a meaningful way online.

Founded in 1836, the University of London consists of 18 independent member institutions—each one considered a university in its own right. All students from all of the Member Institutions are also University of London students, making them part of a community of over 170,000 international learners from London to Singapore. To enhance their student portal in the way of responsive design and engaging experiences for their students, the University of London turned to Liferay.

150 Years of Distance Learning

The University of London has been delivering distance learning initiatives for over 150 years, making it the oldest provider of distance education in the world.

And because many students choose to study independently through these initiatives, the role of the university’s student portal has become a vital one. As the institute’s reach grew globally, the university experienced a need for a feature-filled, flexible and cost-effective technology to help them manage and engage with each of the 1.1 million page views they were getting per month.
