LONDON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
London Metropolitan University is one of the foremost providers of undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and vocational education and training in Britain. Courses are planned in consultation with employers and examining bodies in commerce, industry, the world of art and design, the financial services industries and other professions.

The University is committed to social justice, equal opportunities and community involvement and has many years’ experience of dealing with the needs of mature and overseas students.
The quality of teaching is assessed through the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), who works with higher education institutions to define academic standards and quality, and then carry out reviews against these standards.
In most recent Institutional Audit the QAA concluded that they had ‘broad confidence’, the highest level of commendation, in the soundness of the University’s current and likely future management of the quality of its academic programmes and the academic standards of its awards.
The campus is centred on the City of London, and the Aldgate area of east London. All sites are very well connected with public transport links.
The London City campus has 150 years of unbroken, though changing and service to the educational needs of London. The roots of the education institutions in this area go back to 1848 when the Bishop of London called upon the clergy to set up evening classes to improve the moral, intellectual and spiritual condition of young men in the metropolis.
London North campus has developed over the past 100 years into a modern, forward-looking centre with a reputation for widening access into education.
