It’s coming to that time of the year... Virtual Welcome 2020!


Firstly, we would like to welcome all new and returning students to London Met!

Arriving at university can be daunting, especially with the current situation, but this guide is the ultimate way to make friends and more importantly have fun!

So, come to as many events as you can and get to know your fellow London Met students from day one!

Secondly, we know that it has been a strange year and we will try to make your university experience as normal as possible. Some of our facilities may be temporarily closed but that is not stopping us! We are here to provide you with all the info for the first term, either virtually or in person. Make sure to follow us on social media to stay up to date with all the latest information.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all soon!

This year’s Welcome Fair will be a virtual event and very different to previous ones! We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure you can see all that we have to offer at London Met.

You can still meet and find out more about our sports clubs, societies, fitness programme and online Welcome events as well as all the support networks available. An additional bonus means we can keep the fair open for longer, a whole 2 weeks!

Dates: Monday 5 October - Friday 16 October

Join the Virtual Fair

The Students' Union is organising a range of events for students. You can read more about them on their website.

There are some great opportunities to work at London Met in a range of different areas, from the student bar to the gym.  This allows our students to earn some money and work in a flexible manner around their studies.  You will need to register with MetTemps and you can find out further details at the Job Shop.
