Am I eligible?

Before applying, you need to check you are eligible to come to London Met as an Erasmus student. We can only accept Erasmus students from our university partners and only in the agreed subject area.

You should be a student in good academic standing and have an intermediate/B2 level of English language ability (equivalent to a score of 6.0 IELTS). You cannot study at London Metropolitan University if you do not have this level of English. 

Your first step should be to visit your home university's international office and discuss the application process with them. We won't accept any applications from students who have not been nominated by their home university. If your home university accepts you on to the Erasmus programme and nominates you to study at London Metropolitan University, we will contact you to ask you to begin the application process.

If your university is not listed and you would still like to come to London Met, you can apply to our Study Abroad programme.

How do I apply?

We will email you and ask you to complete the bachelor's or master's application form once your university has sent your name to us as an Erasmus candidate; please do not do so beforehand. For information about how to complete your intended study programme please visit our module selection pages (remember, your module choices should be from the department that has an Erasmus link with your home university).

Bachelor's level application

Master's level application

You will need to attach the following to your form:

  • a university academic transcript of grades
  • a copy of the details page of your passport
  • proof of your English language ability. These are the tests we accept. If you hold a passport from a country that is not on the visa national list and are staying for one semester only then we can accept a statement from your university attesting to your language level.

Applications will not be accepted without the above documentation.


The application deadlines are:

  • 15 August (for students studying during the first (autumn) semester or the full year)
  • 15 November (for students studying during second (spring) semester)

Please note that applications received after these dates will not be considered and you will be asked to submit your application for the following semester.

International offices of partner universities are asked to make their nominations in good time so that students can get their applications to London Met by the deadline.

Once we have received your application, we will let you know by email whether or not you have been accepted. If your application is successful, we will, at a later date, email an offer letter to you which will include your London Met student ID number, plus a visa letter if you are applying in advance for a Visitor visa. If you will be studying with us for a year you will require a Student visa and the information about this can be seen on the visa section.
