Are you study ready?
As we continue with our remote learning delivery, it’s important for students to understand that all of the courses at London Met have a number of online elements, ranging from attending online classes, accessing Weblearn, and submitting assignments online, to name a few.
Please remember that in order to access the online systems at London Met, you do not need a particular device. Any desktop PC, laptop, Mac, tablet or even phone will allow you to access University systems. This means that you can use any device you currently own.
However, if you do not currently have access to a device, there is support available.
You can either borrow a device from the University while you acquire one or, if you cannot afford to buy a device at present, you could purchase one through the Hardship Fund.
The University will loan a Chromebook to any student for an initial period of a month. We'll contact you towards the end of the period to find out if you've put in place an alternative, or whether you need to access the Hardship Fund for support.
We have a range of additional supports in place to support your online learning and helping you to be study ready;
- Access to a range of software via our RemoteLab
- Access to a range of support to help you navigate our systems via our Digital Care package
- Access to IT support if you have queries about your WiFi or connectivity issues
- Access to our Get, tech Go resources which will demonstrate how to get the best out of your inbuilt accessibility tools.
Please note that we will no longer be providing 4G dongles as these do no more than you using your mobile phone to connect. If you are having internet connectivity issues and cannot afford to upgrade to a better broadband provider, you can request to use the Hardship Fund to help with the cost.
