Open days and events

Visiting the University

We know that choosing a university is a big decision, which is why we offer an array of events designed to make that decision as simple and stress-free as possible.

Visiting us at London Met is the best way to find out about the University’s facilities, meet students and staff, and get a feel for what it’s like to study in one of the world's most exciting capital cities. Our open days, workshops and campus tours are designed to give you an insight into life at London Met, with opportunities to get help with your application, ask questions about our courses and get to know our buildings.

In addition to open events for prospective students, we also offer an array of free lectures, workshops and talks which are open to the public. These events, on a stimulating range of subjects, are ideal if you live nearby, are visiting London, or if you have previously studied at London Met and would like to reengage with our community.

Group visits

We're pleased to welcome school or college groups at our open events. If you are organising such a trip please take a look at our frequently asked questions.
