Six months after leaving the university, 96.7% of London Met’s 2016 graduates were either in employment or further study.
What is it about London Met graduates that make them so valuable to employers?
We provide a package of opportunities for students that make them especially employable. At undergraduate level, we offer an extraordinary range of vocational and professional courses, including accounting and finance, law, journalism, aviation management, textile design, marketing and games modelling.
These courses, which are very much hands-on, provide an excellent grounding for students wanting a qualification that will provide a direct route into their chosen career. Describing her journalism course, graduate Rosie Quigley says: “You will get to make your own television and radio shows, create your own magazine as well as becoming adept in media law.”
So where are London Met graduates now?
Our graduates have gone on to achieve amazing things. People such as Imogen Belfield, who studied silversmithing and jewellery, and now designs award-winning jewellery for celebrities such as Rita Ora and Uma Thurman. Or Cristina Leggio who, after completing her biomedical science degree, took a job with Public Health England and became part of a team setting up a diagnostic lab in Sierra Leone during the Ebola outbreak. And let’s not forget the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, whose career was boosted by a law degree at London Met.
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.
