Study Abroad programme
If you're a non-EU student, our Study Abroad programme is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend part of your degree living in London, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Join us for an unforgettable semester or year of full immersion and integration into a new and exciting culture whilst gaining academic credit towards your degree at your home institution. You'll also be able to complete an internship in a London-based company (for an additional fee).
The Study Abroad programme is coordinated by our International Programmes Office. We've been partnered with the State University of New York at Cortland for 30 years and have many other partners including the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) based in Reno, Nevada.
We're one of only three universities in the UK with US Middle States accreditation and have supported students from the United States of America, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, Switzerland, Russia and Turkey through the Study Abroad programme.
Other study abroad programmes
Please note, the Study Abroad programme is only for non-EU students. If you're from the EU, you may be interested in our Study in London programme. Alternatively, if you're studying at one of London Met's Erasmus+ partner institutions, you should take a look at our Erasmus+ scheme.
Whatever your query, please feel free to contact us. We're here to support you every step of the way.
