London Metropolitan University:
London Metropolitan University is one of the UK’s most diverse universities with students from over 190 countries. We offer a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with support for you at every step of your course. You will benefit from meeting students from across the world and from a variety of different backgrounds, as well as having the advantages of studying in central London.
We offer an extensive range of subjects with courses available from foundation and undergraduate through to postgraduate, professional and research level. We also offer Study Abroad Programmes and English language courses. Our courses offer flexibility with entry available in September and January.
Our wide range of courses are specifically tailored to be highly vocational, practical and relevant, helping you get the skills and knowledge you need to launch your career. We design and update our courses so that they’re directly relevant to the current employment market. Influential speakers inspire our students and give solid, practical advice.
Our careers services can help you to find placements, work experience and voluntary opportunities across a wide range of organisations, supporting you to become employable on graduation. Our focus on employability is paying off – we are the number one modern university for graduate starting salaries, according to The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2013.
Minas Hambardzumyan, who studied MA Mass Communications from Armenia and who is now Public Relations Director of the Armenia Eye Care Project says “Right after graduating I was accepted for several positions in prestigious organisations in Armenia”.
London Met is a forward thinking university with an excellent history of working with a large number of academic and corporate institutions. We have developed areas within faculties which help to support talented students and graduates with developing real business experience. The WOW Agency is embedded within the School of Computing and places students from Digital, Multimedia and IT into real client-driven projects. Accelerator placed within the Business School, supports students in starting their own business and materialising their innovative and creative ideas, allowing them to build meaningful careers they love.
The Governor-General of Australia, Her Excellency The Honourable Quentin Bryce AC CVO described her recent visit to the Accelerator (June 2013) as “exhilarating”, saying the facility was transferring entrepreneurial rhetoric into reality. The Governor-General said “You are bringing people, business and entrepreneurship together in this place and I admire that. You hear so much said about the capacity for small business, entrepreneurship and technology to work together but often nothing is done about it. You are transferring the rhetoric into reality.”
Our courses are not only highly vocational and relevant to industry but also deliver the highest level of academic teaching. In 2011, London Metropolitan University received the highest accolade in the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) review. The QAA is an independent body that conducts rigorous assessments of universities and colleges in the UK every five years. They make sure that these institutions are delivering awards, including degrees, of the very highest quality.
Our research is also recognised as of the highest quality. The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) is an assessment exercise that acts as a barometer of research quality in the UK and is used to apportion government funding for research work. In our most recent RAE (2011) more than two thirds of our research was judged to be ‘internationally recognised’ ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world leading’.
Over the past few years, we’ve created new state-of-the-art teaching, social, and professional spaces. We also offer fantastic learning resources including libraries at each of our hubs, and access to a wealth of electronic resources.
State-of-the-art IT studios hold over 4,000 computers and open-access to networks and the internet. Each of our learning centres have areas for group work, individual quiet study spaces and well-equipped IT facilities for our students.
Bia Tessar from Brazil who is now Public Relations Analyst for Posco E&C and who graduated from BA International Relations says “The main campus has a great library with many computers, books, areas to study in groups and other facilities that makes student life easier. I really enjoyed my time at London Met and also gained enough professional experience, to get a job soon after graduating.”
We have excellent facilities which support all our courses and facilitate our students to be industry ready. These include a mock court room, newsroom, recording studios, the Bloomberg Trading Room, digital manufacturing technologies, wood, plastic and metal work studios, editing suites, our £30 million Science Centre, our Gamelab Studio and an interpreting suite.
Amit Banerjee, now Vice-President at Deutsche Bank who studied MSc International Banking and Finance from India says “London Met has cutting edge technology, like the Bloomberg Trading Room which helps to give students a taste of how things are done in a live environment.”
Life at London Met is not all about your academic achievements, and we are aware that many students may need assistance with other areas of life while studying at university. London Metropolitan University offers a wide range of support services for students including accommodation, careers advice, counselling, English language courses, placements and visa advice.
There are also venues hosting a variety of events, including club nights, live music gigs and regular student clubs and society events, parties and quizzes, providing some of the best social facilities for students in London. Students have the opportunity to play sports at all levels at London Met, with activities ranging from aerobics to squash.
Emmanuel Egwu, International Student Officer for the Student Union studying BSc Forensic Science from Nigeria says “As an International Student Officer within the student union, it is
important to me that our international students feel a sense of belonging and identification with the university. Life in London is not all about studying, it’s also about meeting new people, making friends, networking, socialising and representing our nation, family, religion and tribe.”
