Before applying, make sure you discuss your class choices with your academic advisers at home and ensure your chosen modules are approved for credit transfer. Here you'll find all you need to know about making an application, including fees and eligibility.

Please note, the Study Abroad programme is for non-EU applicants. If you're from the EU and want to study abroad at London Met, please see our Study in London programme.


If your university has a Study Abroad partnership with London Metropolitan University please contact your university's International Office for details of costs.

Undergraduate students applying independently

For students applying independently, the standard overseas undergraduate fee for 2017/18 is:

One semester: £5,700
Two semesters: £11,400

Postgraduate fees

Postgraduate fees depend on which master's degree you wish to follow for each semester. Please email with your area of interest. You must meet the standard course requirements.


To be eligible for the study abroad programme you should:

  • be enrolled as an undergraduate or postgraduate student at a recognised university or college
  • be in at least your second year of study (or have completed at least one semester of postgraduate study)
  • be in good academic standing with a grade point average (GPA) of 2.7 (out of 4.0) (if from the USA) or a minimum C grade average

Non-native English speakers should have one of the following Secure English Language Test (SELT) scores:

  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 6.0 overall with 5.5 minimum in each component
  • Trinity College London Integrated Skills in English (ISE) II exam level B2 (tests only available in the UK)

If English isn't your first language but you have achieved consistently high grades in English taught courses at university, it may not be necessary to have an additional English qualification. However, if you require a visa to enter the UK you will need to take an English test from one of the providers above, which are approved by the Home Office.
