Step 1 – Assess your offer

Is your offer conditional?

  • Yes, I have received a conditional offer

If your offer is conditional, you need to carefully read the conditions listed on the letter and make sure you fulfil every single one of them. You may need to provide more documents such as your academic certificates or your proof of meeting our English language requirements. Please upload digital copies of all documents listed as conditions on the applicant portal

  • No, I have an unconditional offer

Great news! This means that you have met all requirements and sent all the documents we need from you! You now need to accept your offer and start considering your accommodation options.

How do I accept my offer?

You can accept your offer by following the instructions on your offer letter. If you have applied via UCAS, you can accept your offer on UCAS Track. If you have applied directly, you can accept it on the applicant portal.

Can I accept a conditional offer?

Yes, you can! If you have decided that you want to study with us, you can accept your offer even if it is conditional. Once you have submitted all the documents we need from you, your offer will then become unconditional.

Step 2 – Familiarise yourself with the immigration and visa regulations

As an international student, you are normally required to obtain a Tier 4 visa before entering the UK to study. In order to obtain a Tier 4 visa, you must first:

  • firmly accept your unconditional offer
  • prepare to pay the NHS surcharge – this can usually be done at the same time as the visa application
  • meet all conditions of your offer – ensure you are holding an unconditional offer
  • complete and return the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) request form online as instructed in your email
  • ensure you meet the financial maintenance requirement as detailed in the Tier 4 Policy guidance (page 44 onwards) – if you need to send your bank statements to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for your visa application, we will ask to see them before we issue your CAS so we can best advise you

Please make sure you complete the above steps as early as possible. However, please note, CAS letters will not be issued until three months before the start of your programme. You must then complete all further steps required to obtain the visa as indicated on the CAS pages on our website.

"I could call on my tutors whenever I needed their help or advice. I felt very supported. I had high hopes and they were met."

Step 3 – Apply for accommodation

You need to apply for accommodation as soon as you've accepted your offer. Our halls of residence are managed by third-party providers, not by the University, so you need to apply directly to the hall of residence you've chosen. Please note that although there are plenty of options available, accommodation is not guaranteed and is allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Step 4 – Find out more about life in London

Living in London is a fantastic experience as a student – with so many places to explore, things to do and people to meet. Whether it's working in the UK, the cost of living or how to register with a doctor, we understand that as an international student you may have some questions and concerns about moving to London – we hope that the information below will help answer your questions.

"The careers service at London Met was excellent, not only in supporting me at the beginning of my career but also in developing the job search skills which I still use today."

Step 5 – Do you need help with your English?

If you're worried about your level of English or you don't meet the English language entry criteria for your course, you can apply to study one of our Pre-sessional English Language courses. They will prepare you for entry on to one of our undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses. We offer a five-week course and a 10-week course depending on your current level of English.
