If you choose to study one of London Met's extended degree courses starting in the 2018-19 academic year, you might be eligible for the following financial support:

  • a £1,000 bursary when you join us in Year 0 if you are receiving the full Maintenance Loan
  • a £1,000 progression and achievement award when you progress from Year 0 to Year 1 with an overall mark of 60% or more

  • You must be a permanent resident in the UK and be a home student for fee purposes.
  • You must be new student and should not already hold a first degree or higher qualification.
  • In order to be eligible for the progression and achievement award you must complete Year 0 with an overall mark of 60% or higher and enrol onto Year 1.
