The Learning Cafés are an open and informal space designed to facilitate stimulating debate, critical reflection and awareness whilst discussing a range of topics, interests and issues; you’ll get to meet others on your course and from within your School.
It’s a great way to build friendships and community whilst learning. You’ll get the most out of them by attending the series of events in your school, but if you can’t, just attend as many of them as you can, it’s all extra provision and contact time for you, to support your learning journey with us.
If you have any questions please contact your School Office.
These sessions will allow for you to discuss your studies such as "how to reference", "how to be successful in your assessments" and many other sessions to ensure your success. Contact your Academic Mentors for more information
Our Academic Mentors should have now emailed you with links and details for our upcoming Learning Cafes. If you haven't received an invite, don't worry, your Academic Mentor can send it out to you.
Please contact the Academic Mentor for your area:

The School is running a series of online Learning Cafes for students beginning their studies in February 2021. These Cafes will provide a chance to meet staff and students from across the School of Social Professions, and will provide advice on studying at University.
The School is holding the first of its Learning Cafe events for new Level 3, Level Four and Level 7 students from 1-2pm on Wednesday February 24th. The session will focus on Top Tips for Successful Studies, and will be an opportunity to ask any questions you have about learning at London Met. The session will be delivered online, and you can join via the School weblearn page:
- March 3rd (1-2pm) we will be running a Learning Cafe on "Studying with Confidence"
- March 17th (1-2pm), we will be running a Learning Cafe on "Preparing for your First Assessment". You can access it here:
The remaining Learning Cafes are part pf the Social Profesions Expert Talks (SPex) series, where members of staff host a discussion an issue relevant to students in the School.
In the School of Social Sciences, our Learning Cafes provide a fortnightly opportunity for new students to engage with academics and fellow students in a more informal setting than in regular classes. They provide a forum in which students can ask questions which have arisen during their studies, seek study skills advice and receive guidance relating to their assessments. They also provide a means of further developing our academic community within the school. The cafes can be attended as standalone and one-off events.
We'll be adding more events shortly.
