History, culture, daily life, and nightlife make London one of the world’s great cities and an exciting place to be a student. Traveling in and around London is simple as the entire city and surrounding areas are accessible by bus, underground, and train. The city has some of the finest libraries and museums in the world, ranging from the long-established British Museum and Natural History Museum to the new British Library. London is an artistic center that rivals Paris and Rome, and art lovers find paradise in its many galleries, such as the Tate Gallery, the Tate Modern, the National Gallery, and the Royal Academy of Art. There are over 250 museums in London, most of which are free to visit. The variety of entertainment is almost unimaginable. For example, you can attend classical music, jazz or rock concerts, attend mainstream or fringe theatre performances, go to the opera, get a bird’s eye view of the city by riding the London Eye or attend international sporting events. You can also shop in traditional, upscale stores on Bond Street or Savile Row and in the trendy boutiques of Soho and Covent Garden.
London Metropolitan University is a diverse, metropolitan university of around 12,000 students, located at the heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world. Its mission is to transform lives through excellent education and build rewarding careers for its students, staff and partners. Its courses have received top marks from the UK's Quality Assurance Agency and in the latest Research Assessment Exercise, more than two-thirds of the University's research output was judged to be world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognized.
The University combines a friendly atmosphere and welcoming attitude with the capacity and resources to deliver a quality learning experience. Students have access to excellent facilities, from the recently refurbished Learning Centre on Holloway Road to the Superlab – a cutting edge science facility with over 280 workstations.
Teaching takes place on two campuses in central London and students may study at either or both campuses, depending on the classes they take. The North campus in Islington concentrates on humanities, social sciences, computing, mathematics and natural sciences. There are plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants nearby and there is also a choice of cinemas, theatres and comedy venues in the local area for you to enjoy. The new Arsenal soccer stadium is just a three-minute walk from the university's Learning Centre.
