Following this guidance when Clearing is open:
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."

Meet our real London community
"I believe that with education, you can do great things. It doesn't matter where you're from, as long as you have that, you can change the world."
"To me, London Met symbolises change because that's what it did in my life. You can do so much more than you thought you could."
"I've always felt London Met has a very unique feel and brand to it. It's not your typical big university. It's a community university – there’s a really good atmosphere to it."
"Meeting other people is not about right or wrong, it’s about learning and acceptance. London Met really feels like a place where everyone could belong."
"London Met – it doesn't just provide you with academic lessons. It also teaches you life lessons and about different cultures. I think it's so important to go to a university in London because you get to learn from other people too – we're all from different walks of life."
"What I see here is everyone being really welcoming and there's a sense of community which I've never seen at any other institution."
"Being here has shaped many of the things I do and I am grateful to the University and a number of good people I have worked with at London Met for that."
"It is the place where I’ve met some great people who I consider friends. People who share difficulties, struggles, disappointments. Situations that brought us together. I met lecturers who believe in me and keep pushing me to achieve the very best of me."
"As an alumna, London Met means the gateway to the path that led me to realise my passion for social work, to go on to become Principal Lecturer, Head of Social Work and to make a difference to students who come to social work education from diverse backgrounds. Students like me."
"Once I got into a classroom of students, I fell in love with helping them to believe in themselves and to change their practice with young children. I never thought, 20 years ago, that I'd be teaching at a university!"
"The mission of the University has been to widen participation ever since I’ve been here. I believe in that mission, and I’ve seen it work. It’s that idea that you can give some people a chance."
Nils Perez Codesal
"London is a place for me where I could grow in the best way possible. I felt so much more comfortable just being myself."
