London Metropolitan University is first class for academic support; lecturers are available to speak with students at any time and always try to aid students overall development. Lectures are structured to maximise student understanding, and seminars provide students with the opportunity to participate through discussions, game scenarios and simulations. These actives help to challenge and engage students, but it also helps individuals to develop social skills and connections. Clear guidance is continually provided regarding assignments to help students succeed, and feedback is clear and provided in a timely fashion. However, the institutions academic resources are quite dated, with many physical books in the library dating to the mid 90’s or earlier. This is common for many universities, but London Metropolitan University does not have an extensive catalogue of current literature, and when available, there is often only one or two books available to students. Furthermore, the university does not have an extensive catalogue of online resources for students to use, and many resources on databases like JASTOR are often unavailable to London Met Students, which can make extensive research difficult. Accommodation is not provided by the university, and very little is done to aid students when finding a place to stay. Beyond these negatives, London met does provide students with opportunities to find new friends through sports clubs and other activities, and the university has support in place to safeguard physical and mental well being. Overall, I would highly recommend the university, but it does need to modernise.View more

As a mature and foreign student, I felt comfortable from the beginning because the university is very inclusive and cares about its students. What I liked the most was the learning and that all the lecturers are very approachable and willing to help you during your university experience. You also have many facilities within the university that will help you succeed in your course. For example, the library is very easy to use and in terms of resources is quite complete. Without a doubt, I would recommend this university to all who are willing to experience a life-changing experience by getting a degree.View more
I graduated BA Visual communications in London met and it was the best 3 years I’ve had in my life. The staff were not just friendly, we became friends and they took everyone’s work very personally. They would give us each 1 to 1 time and they were always available for a chat when you need them. The art facilities were also fantastic and available to use in out of uni hours. We were spoiled with materials and attention, the library was fantastic and there was everything I’ve ever searched for. Highly recommend this uni.View more
My years at London Met were eventful. From a trip to Malta to having classes in the middle of the financial district in Moorgate, it was definitely an experience. It has a big multicultural environment with people from all across Europe (I got in around the visa scandal so not really much around the world). Despite that, it being very interesting to connect with all the different people from the different backgrounds.
The teachers were nice and fairly approachable and easy to keep in touch with. The extra help they offered outside class was fantastic. I thought that the schedule was not too intense so everything we had to do and prepare was pretty doable in the time given.
On the negative side, there were several different campus spread through London so you did not feel the unity of one campus. I feel like especially the Moorgate campus lacked student life among others essential amenities like a library. While the library in Calcutta House became my second home while writing my dissertation and I have great memories there.View more
The university is great, lecturers are very supportive and try to give you training or certain support in everything you do.
I was studying Business Management and the course had various of aspects that will be in need when being in a profession.
Some module even gives you the chance to work whiles studying, which is very helpful as you can put your theory into practise. It even goes so far as helping you build a business plan for your success.
What I liked the most was that , the university focuses not only on helping you to achieve a degree but also helping you to get a great Job reasons why the focus most of their assignments to the real world of profession.
I would always recommend the university to a friend as it has helped me to identify my strength and has supported me in a way that I would be very confident in a working environment.View more
