London Met launches new scholarship programme
New undergraduate students joining London Metropolitan University in 2012 may be entitled to a scholarship worth £6,000 to help fund their studies.
The National Scholarship Programme, funded by the University and the government, will provide 188 scholarships for students from low-income backgrounds.
The scholarships will reduce the course fees for students, meaning a three-year undergraduate degree at London Metropolitan University could cost as little as £12,300.
With many other UK universities charging £27,000 for a three-year degree, the scholarships reflect London Met’s commitment to providing an affordable quality education.
Sophie Cloutterbuck, Schools & Colleges Partnership Manager in London Met’s Widening Participation team, said: “We are really excited to be offering these £6,000 scholarships as it means we can support our students through the duration of their degree.
“The opportunity to engage with students from under-represented groups in Higher Education is very important to us, especially given London Met's long term commitment to Widening Participation.
“We have always been committed to making university education available to all, and this is one of the ways in which we can do just that.”
