Pre-degree courses

Mature students or younger people who have the ability to succeed but do not have all the formal qualifications or experience needed to start an undergraduate degree can enrol on pre-degree and access courses.

A pre-degree is a one or two semester course at the University which, when completed successfully, will guarantee you a place on the first year of a degree or diploma at London Met.

Access courses are held at our partner colleges. These programmes prepare students for entry into undergraduate degrees by providing knowledge and skills in specific subject areas.

Undergraduate courses

An undergraduate course (known as a bachelor's degree) is usually the first degree students apply for and lasts for three years.

You will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Sciences (BSc), Engineering (BEng) or Education (BEd), depending on your choice of subject.

The basic building block of the degree is a module. Each module is worth 30 credits and an honours degree is awarded to students who achieve 360 credits.

You will be studying some core modules, which are compulsory parts of the course, and some optional modules, which you can choose according to your own interests.

Postgraduate courses

Postgraduate degrees are for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree to a good standard or have enough experience in the relevant field.

A master's is usually taught like an undergraduate degree and takes one or two years. It is more challenging than a bachelor's and demands considerable independent thought from students.

A doctorate (PhD) is the most demanding academic qualification, and usually involves creating a book-length publishable piece of original research in its field.

We offer a wide range of MA, MSc, MPhil and PhD programmes.
