Join our real London community

"My university is a mirror of the real London. Get out to the streets of London, be it Covent Garden or Brixton, take a look around you. What you see is an entire world in one city. London Metropolitan University is just like London itself, a home and harbour to representatives of different worlds."

Oleksiy – London Met student

A note about The Real London

The Real London came from an idea developed by a London Met graduate who was inspired by the extraordinary people who make up the University community here. Each story features a member of this community – a student, staff member or graduate – who has been photographed and/or filmed in a London location that means something to them. Their real London stories explore who they are in their own words and come from informal interviews conducted by this same graduate alongside colleagues she now works with at London Met. We hope you enjoy getting to know them as much as we did!
