Have a place elsewhere through UCAS but want to swap to London Met?

There are hundreds of excellent reasons to study in London. Whether you want to stay close to home or make the move to the capital, we'll help you find a course you'll love.

If you've changed your mind about studying elsewhere, we can help you switch your studies to London Met.

Follow this guidance if you’re from the UK, or from the EU and have settled or pre-settled status, and you want to apply to London Met instead.

Here's what to do if you want to change university:

1. Browse the courses we have available – or you can search for a course using the Clearing course finder below.

2. Ready to apply? Make sure you have the following information ready:

  • your UCAS number
  • your exam results
  • your personal details (telephone number, email address and date of birth)
  • the name of the London Metropolitan University course you wish to study or the field of study you are interested in

3. Complete our online Clearing application form or call our Clearing hotline – our helpful advisers will talk you through your application. International applicants, including EU applicants who do not have settled or pre-settled status in the UK, should read our information for international students.

4. Once we've made you an offer you will need to decline your firm offer place through the UCAS Hub. This will mean you're released into Clearing and will be able to accept your London Met offer via UCAS. Our friendly advisers will talk you through what you need to do if you need any help. Find out more about declining your place on the UCAS website.

5. Once you've been released into Clearing you will need to log into the UCAS Hub and enter London Metropolitan University as your Clearing choice. Our UCAS institution code is L68.

6. Once you've secured your place at London Met and if you have applied for funding already, you need to make sure you notify Student Finance England that you've changed university.

7. Follow any other instructions our advisers give you and then relax. Once we've confirmed your place you can begin to look forward to enjoying university life.

Hear from one of our students

"I chose to study at London Met because of its diversity. Before applying for London Met I was accepted to study at a private American university in Richmond. After attending a few days there I realised it wasn’t for me. London Met is full of people from different backgrounds and walks of life and this was particularly interesting to me as someone with a Moroccan background – I felt more comfortable and able to express myself."
