Why choose London Met

  • From our £30 million Science Centre and purpose-built art and design studios to our mock courtroom and £100,000 newsroom, our buildings house excellent state-of-the-art facilities.
  • Learn more about your chosen course from our leading academics.
  • Meet our amazing student ambassador team and find out what it’s really like at university and how to make the most of it.

 How to apply             

    • Once you have chosen the course you are interested in you will need to complete our online application form so we can find out more about you.
    • We will ask for some information on your current studies, reasons for wanting to join the summer school and the details of a teacher we can contact for a reference.
    • You will be asked to select a first and second choice course. Please note: if you are applying for a course based at our Holloway campus, you can choose from any of the courses in Weeks One or Two as your second choice. If you are applying for a course on our Cass Art, Architecture and Design week at the Aldgate campus then you must choose a second choice from this week only.
    • You can apply for both the Holloway and Aldgate weeks separately. However we cannot guarantee a place on both summer schools. 
    • Please note that all of our courses are non-residential and we cannot arrange accommodation for attendees.
    • You can download a copy of our 2017 Summer School brochure or view it online below for further information.
