Policy information for applicants

Standard entry criteria

London Metropolitan University is committed to transparent admissions procedures.

Standard terms of admission

All offers made by London Metropolitan University are subject to the standard terms of admissions. These will be confirmed with your official offer.


Fees are subject to annual revision, but changes to fees in respect of continuing students (that is, those already registered at the time of the change) will be limited to the greater of the annual change in the Retail Price Index or 5% per annum. Fees are charged for each year in which you enrol. The fee for each year is based on the modules that you register for in that year.

Admissions appeals procedure

The University is committed to ensuring that all of our admissions decisions are fair, transparent and conducted according to our agreed policies and procedures and to this end the University has adopted the following appeals policy:

An appeal is defined as a request for reconsideration of a decision to reject an application. The University will not normally alter a rejection decision should an applicant’s actual performance be greater than was predicted or demonstrated at the time of his or her application.

Should a rejected applicant consider that either:

  • the University has not adhered to its own policies or procedures or breach of any national policies or relevant legal requirements: or 
  • that there is evidence of bias or prejudice against the applicant

Then he or she is entitled to ask for a review of the decision to reject the application.

Fee status questionnaire

Your fee classification (Home, Islands, EU or [Overseas]) will determine your tuition fees. If you feel you have been wrongly assessed, you should submit the following Fee Assessment Pack  providing all the necessary documentation.

The information you provide will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act and will be used to help us assess your correct status regarding fees and student support. This information will not be made available outside the University.
