London Met's impact on Olympics
London Metropolitan University has been getting into the Olympic spirit with a range of activities.
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are fast approaching, and London Metropolitan University has been getting into the Olympic spirit with a range of activities.
Now, as part of Universities Week 2012 (30 April to 4 May), two London Met stories are featured in a series of special reports published by Universities UK.
Universities Week takes place each year to highlight the role played by Higher Education institutions in the UK. It is organised by Universities UK, the representative body for UK universities.
The theme for this year’s programme is the contribution of universities to the Olympic Games, and two Olympic successes from London Met are being celebrated.
London Met lecturer and artist Patrick Brill (better known as Bob and Roberta Smith) and alumna Tracey Emin designed two of the official posters for the Paralympic Games. Their achievement is included in one of the reports.
London Met’s ambitious Aldgate Project, which has seen 400 architecture, art and design students transform parts of East London in time for the Games, has also been featured.
It will be included in a special report, published on Wednesday 2 May.
