Abstract in different language: Between Ibadan and London, there evolved an international education linkage in the twentieth century, precisely, it started in 1948. The relationship was meant to establish university education in a British colony of Ibadan city in Nigeria. This paper analyses the terms and engagement of Inter-University Council in the planning and administrative decisions that internationalised University of London in Ibadan society. The curriculum and assessment system developed synergised the relationship that actually qualified University College Ibadan (UCI) as an extension of University of London, which is an African Campus. The levels of internationalisation created the ideal academic space for research which brewed academic capital that has proven to be sustainable within the Nigerian state. The paper examines the evidence that affirm the relationships. It creates a narrative of the knowledge systems and academic management. The paper traces the trend of internationalisation till contemporary times. The work depends on primary and secondary sources.
