Welcome to London Met
Based in one of the world's most exciting capital cities, London Met is home to a diverse community of inspiring and determined learners, teachers and innovative thinkers.
We offer a wide range of courses, from undergraduate and postgraduate degrees to short courses and professional qualifications, many of which are available to study full-time or part-time to best suit your needs and lifestyle.
Dedicated to employability
We take pride in helping our students reach their goals and succeed in their careers. 96.7% of all London Met graduates are in work or further study within six months (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2016–17). All of our undergraduate courses include some form of work-related learning, such as a placement, client project or on-campus work experience, and many courses are accredited by professional bodies.
Vibrant and diverse
We're proud of our vibrant, multi-ethnic and socially diverse community, and encourage you to join us – we currently have more than 140 nationalities studying with us.
One of the best universities for carbon reduction
We have strong links with the local area and are committed to environmental sustainability. We've installed LED lights, solar panels and energy-efficient air conditioning, reducing our carbon emissions by 72% since 2009.
