What we do best: how we support our students

We appreciate students have complicated lives. Supporting them to excel in their studies is something London Met takes pride in.

When you're looking for a university course, it's important to consider not just the course and module content (which is very important and is set out clearly on our course pages), and the facilities available to you, but also the services around the course. What else do the universities you're considering do to support their students?

Here are a few examples of the ways in which we support students at London Met to succeed:

Careers and employability

At London Met we’re invested in making your transition into university life and then to graduate employment as smooth and successful as possible. We don’t just talk the talk – the University genuinely has record levels of graduate employment.

The results of the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey show that 96.7% of our 2017 graduates were in work or further study six months after graduation. We've seen graduate employment rise year on year over the last five years.

How did we do this? Our dedicated careers advisers offer personalised advice and support, alumni and career mentoring schemes, as well as access to a vibrant volunteering programme that can provide you with experience in community-based organisations to give your CV that extra boost.

Finance and funding

Money. It's very important, and at London Met we understand how much of your university experience hinges on access to funding. Our dedicated team of specialist funding advisers aim to make your time with us as stress-free and affordable as possible by helping you identify any relevant loans, bursaries, fee reductions or scholarships. You’re welcome to visit the team even before you make your application.

If you need help getting your student funding in order, and you're holding an offer for a course at London Met, we recommend joining one of our funding workshops.

We regularly review our bursaries and course fee reductions so you should always check the funding your studies section of our website to see the latest information on bursaries and fee reductions we’re offering. That's where you’ll also find information on eligibility criteria and how to apply.

Other student support

The services we offer set us apart from many other universities.

In addition to our Disabilities and Dyslexia Service (DDS), which offers support to students with specific disabilities or Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs), we offer a range of services for students.

Our student services team has a Matrix accreditation, a highly sought after quality mark that is only awarded to support services that can demonstrate excellence in all aspects of information, guidance and advice to students.

We’ve also been awarded the Buttle Quality Mark for Care Leavers so no matter what your background you know that when you reach out to us you’ll be received by caring staff committed to achieving the best for your wellbeing. Our experienced and professional staff do this by providing help through one-to-one meetings as well as over the phone, via email and through social media. 

Every year, London Metropolitan University helps hundreds of students find places on full-time undergraduate degrees. You can start a course at London Met in September, but many are also available to start in January. Take a look at our full list of undergraduate courses or contact our course enquiries team for more information.
