● London campus is located in Downshire House, in the grounds of the University of Roehampton (UoR). The campus provides a close-knit, friendly atmosphere, with easy access to all the facilities of the wider UoR campus, including its world-class library, restaurants, student clubs and sports venues.

  • Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited at university level by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). This means Glion is allowed to deliver its own undergraduate and graduate awards.

  • Accreditation by NECHE is not partial, it applies to the institution as a whole. As such, this recognition is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. However, accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of services and opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
