With Wi-Fi, pool tables, and board games, London Met’s “The Rocket” is an ideal spot for studying and hanging out with friends. It has a fantastic outdoor courtyard and venue space, which is perfect for relaxing between and after lectures. Be sure to stop by for quiz nights, karaoke, and happy hours. For deeper conversation, join the monthly Critical Conversation Cafes, hosted by the Center for Equity and Inclusion, which offer a place for debate, reflection and awareness. 


London’s airports offer low-cost flights throughout the U.K. and Europe, so weekend trips to popular spots like Spain and Italy are accessible and affordable.

Gain insight into your future career field during a 6-week, 70-hour, credit bearing professional experience.  Available for most fields of study, the externship is a great fit for media, journalism, publishing, education, business, accountancy, finance, marketing, hospitality, law, and health. London Met staff will work with you on your application, find an appropriate placement, and prepare you to tackle a work-based challenge. A concurrent workshop-based class will review work ethics, inclusive practices, self-reflection, and professional development training. The externship is worth 15 U.K. credits (~3 U.S. credit hours).

Other Academic Conditions

Information about modules (classes) and credit information is available on the London Met Module Selection Guide. 

Due to the expected exam period, we strongly recommend students enrolling in lab coursework plan to attend for a full academic year or for the spring term. Many lab courses have exams in mid to late January that require in-person attendance.

Students staying for the Autumn semester who need to be back in their home country by early January for university or an internship, may be able to complete an alternative assessment instead of taking exams which occur in the last two weeks of January. Not all modules have an exam as the final assessment so an alternative may be unnecessary. 

In addition to TOEFL and IELTS, London Metropolitan University also accepts the following Cambridge English scores along with the certifying statement of results:

-Cambridge C1 Advanced (formerly English: Advanced (CAE)): grade C and above

-Cambridge C2 Proficiency (formerly Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE)): grade C and above
