Returning home

Grades are not released until March for the autumn semester or July for the spring semester. Sometimes there are delays in confirming results due to batches of coursework having to be sent to external examiners. Therefore, if you are due to graduate immediately after your semester abroad, you need to take this into consideration as your home university may not allow you to graduate until they have received the results from London Metropolitan University.

Your transcripts will be sent out once all grades are confirmed (not provisional) and all the money owed is accounted for (tuition, library fines, etc) If you have any outstanding debts, your transcript will not be sent to you until they are settled.
