We love to welcome mature students to London Met

We are proud to have a diverse student cohort – almost 68% of whom are mature learners – and their contribution to the University is invaluable. 

Mature students don't necessarily need formal qualifications to study with us. You're considered a mature student if you're aged 21 or older when you start your first undergraduate degree course. If you have relevant work or life experience, are enthusiastic and committed, then we invite you to come to one of our Open Days.

We understand that many of you have commitments outside of university and we are proud to say we have a student/parent liaison adviser at London Met, Susie McLoughlin, who can provide information on financial and other matters regarding being a student and a parent.

We can also help you apply to university with our UCAS Application Workshops.

We offer incredible support here at London Met. Take a look below.

Did you know you can shadow a student for a day? If you're aged 21 or older, you can spend a day or an hour or two with a London Met student and see if university is for you. Find out more about our Shadow a Student scheme.
