It is theoritically vague to say someone studied in the "University of London". The current University of London plays just a ceremonial role as it is some sort of a collegiate University with a mixture of seemingly independent colleges/Universities like Imperial College, Royal Holloway University, School of Oriental and African Languages, London School of economics, etc. For verification purposes, it is important to always cite where our statesmen studied. I know for sure that Carlson Anyangwe studied in the School of Oriental and African studies, but going by this note, i cannot clearly verify where Enonchong studied.


RIP Enonchong the Great.


Mr. Rexon, get your facts right if you graduate from any of these schools or collages your certificate is awarded by the University of London. I will refer you to those who graduated from Ibadon Nigeria prior to 1969 who issued their Certificate.


When the ones we count on them die, who are those who stay, the Munas,achidi, musonge, inoni, ngolle ngolle, ndeh, mukete, atanga etc. What a punishment for anglophones.

May the Lord rest his soul.



I think you have misunderstood what i mean. There are collegiate Universities where the colleges are independent and there are those where the colleges are not. The colleges of the University of London are somewhat independent and sometimes offer thesame courses. Thus, an MBA graduate from London Business school will not be classified thesame as an MBA graduate of Royal Holloway, LSE, which are independently rank. Other courses like law are offered in more than one of these colleges. Thus, many identify with their respective colleges for employment purposes and not with the overall university of London. An Employer will find it vague to read a CV saying the University of London without a specification of the specific college that the candidate studied at. Unlike Durham University where the colleges are not independent, they do not offer similar courses and the management of their respective programs are all centralised.


Mr. Rexon,
University of London is a federation of schools and collages. Most of these schools and collages only became independent after the university reforms in the early 1990s. Also note that the university of London has foriegn branches in countries like Australia. If mr Enochong's certificate was awarded by the university of London then thats where he Studied. When he went there in the 1960s, these schools where not indepent. I do not see your reasoning on this issue please search the history of the university of london. I will give the most common example now, there are over 5 medical schools in the university of London federation, take a look at the The GMC their graduate references are MBBS(Lon). Even those who studied at Ibadon nigeria prior to 1969 still have MBBS(Lon) see Prof Lantum and Anomah in Cameroon. Ibadon was part of this federation in those days.
My challenge to you is when did these schools you mentioned came to be independent? I don't think you know the evolution of the university of London well enough. if the employer saw the certificate he is going to see University of London. so get the point


And moreso, Royal halloway is not part of the university of London federation. LSE was before it became independent.



You gave me a website to check the colleges making the University of London: click on the link yourself and you should be able to answer your last argument that Royal Holloway at Egan is not part of the University of London. Secondly, i will draw your attention to the fact that Prof Anomah Ngu have always publicly said he studied in the Univesity of Ibadan and rarely mention the University of London. That does not mean that his degree was not issued by the University of London. I stand by my point that saying anyone studied at the University of London without specifying their college is somewhat vague, even though i have rightly said there is a university of London that plays more or less a ceremonial role, but in practice, none exists. I am not talking about the University's history here, however, i will draw your attention to the fact that even before the reforms in the early 90's, the respective colleges had some form of autonomy. The reforms only came to broaden their autonomy vis raising and management of research grants, admission, award of degrees , etc.
