Upon consideration of the information gathered, the performance achieved by International College of Economics and Finance has been rated as excellent.

ICEF Has Received a Recognition Letter from the University of London

The monitoring exercise is conducted by UoL on an annual basis and covers Teaching Centers that support the UoL programmes worldwide. ICEF has been commended for its excellent performance during the review year of 2019 by senior officers of UoL and LSE, as is noted in the recognition letter addressed to ICEF Director, Sergey Yakovlev, by Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of London Mary Stiasny.

In its letter the University of London also states that it looks forward to a continued successful working relationship with ICEF. ICEF owes its strong result largely to the outstanding performance being shown by its students in the University of London examinations.

The letter also states that ICEF has achieved an excellent examination pass rate of 88%, which is significantly above the global average of 78%. In UoL 2019 international programme examinations, ICEF students’ score average was higher than 60 (out of 100), as compared to the global average of 48 points.
