Study Abroad Diversity Scholarship

We welcome applications for our Study Abroad Diversity Scholarship from international visiting students applying to our undergraduate study abroad programme. This scholarship represents a £1,000 tuition fee reduction for one semester.  

This scholarship is aimed at students coming from backgrounds underrepresented in study abroad. Please note, by study abroad we mean those who are looking to spend a semester or year of their home degree at London Met. It is not intended for overseas students applying for a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree programme with us.

Eligibility criteria

In order to meet the criteria, you must:

  • be an international student who has applied to our  study abroad programme
  • be a current undergraduate student
  • have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.7 (out of 4) or equivalent

Restrictions and exemptions

The scholarship will only be available in form of a tuition fee reduction. It cannot be offered as a cash reward and it is only valid for one semester. This scholarship cannot be combined with any other London Met scholarships and tuition fee discounts. The scholarship cannot be deferred. If you choose to defer to another semester you will need to reapply for the scholarship.
