Transparency Return

In accordance with regulations set out by the UK's Office for Students, the following information is published in the interests of transparency regarding the University’s admissions data and student body.

The information published on this page shows: 

  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us
  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us

It also shows these numbers by reference to: 

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socioeconomic background

It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

London Metropolitan University is built on a strong history of widening participation, and today a total of 96% of our student  population is from at least one underrepresented group. As one of the most socially inclusive universities in the sector, inclusivity is at the core of our vision, mission and values. We are committed to ensuring that all of our students succeed, regardless of their background. Moreover, we are committed to ensuring that our graduates make a positive contribution to society by adopting inclusive practices when they enter graduate level employment or in the furtherance of their educational careers. 

If you are thinking about going to university, we would love to talk to you. We accept a wide range of qualifications, and we take account of academic potential, not just academic history. Contact us today

Table 2a: Percentage of first degrees at grade 2:1 or above by characteristic for 2017-18 qualifiers

Table 2a clearly highlights a significant degree awarding gap between Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and White students. Our London Met strategy 2019/20 – 2024/25 states that our plan is to eradicate degree awarding gaps and to drive this, we have appointed an Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor for Attainment, Equity and Inclusion. We will also be creating a Centre for Attainment, Equity and Inclusion to oversee and enable inclusive teaching practice and to closely monitor student outcomes. Full details about our plans are contained in our Access and Participation plan.
