Application for undergraduate Study

We offer undergraduate courses beginning in September and January of each year. They range from one-year top-up courses to foundation-year degrees and traditional undergraduate BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) degrees.

Choose a course

The University’s academic structure is organized into six schools, with subjects ranging from computing, science, business and law to art and design. You can take a look at a full list of the subjects we offer on our undergraduate course pages.

Check the entry requirements

To study an undergraduate degree here you may need to have studied a specific subject or achieved certain grades at school or college. Make sure you check the entry requirements on the relevant course page before applying.



The application process varies depending on when you want to begin your studies. If you want to start a full-time undergraduate degree in September, you need to apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), but if you wish to begin studying full-time in January or part-time in January or September you should apply directly to us.


Applying as an international student

At London Met we understand that the needs of international students are different to those joining us from within the UK. Here you’ll find all of the information you need to make the application process as simple as possible, with details about how to apply, entry requirements and English language requirements as well as advice about moving to the UK.

Please note that applications for our Autumn 2020 term have now closed. Applications for our January and September 2021 intakes are still open.

The first steps

We offer courses beginning in September and January of each year. They range from one-year top-up courses and foundation/extended degrees to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

Choosing a course

The University’s academic structure is organized into six schools, with subjects ranging from computing, science, business and law to art and design. You can take a look at a full list of the subjects we offer on our course pages. If you need any help or advice, you can also contact our international team on

Checking the entry requirements

To study a degree here you may need to have studied a specific subject or achieved certain grades previously. Make sure you check the entry requirements before applying. You’ll find these on each individual course page but you may also need to take a look at our country-specific entry requirements to see the equivalent qualifications for your country and our English language requirements.


Non-EU applicants applying to study full-time may choose to apply via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) or apply directly to the University. If you’re wanting to study part-time you should apply directly to the University. Apply for your chosen course by visiting the relevant course page. You can also refer to our guide to applying online. Make sure you’re aware of our international application deadlines.

If you require a Student visa (previously Tier 4) and wish to study part time, you should make sure you understand which courses are eligible for this type of visa on a part time basis.  Part time study on a Student visa is only available for postgraduate study at RQF Level 7 or above. For example, you cannot study a part time Bachelor degree on a Student visa.


As a part-time student on a Student visa, you are not allowed to take part in work placements through or at the University, and this may limit the course options available to you. For example, if a work placement is an integral part of the course you will not be able to study on it on a part-time basis.  Please also be aware that you will not be allowed to work in your free time or bring dependents with you, so it is important you are prepared to fund your studies without working in the UK. Self-employment is not allowed at all if you hold a Student visa.  Please contact our Advice Service for more information on part time study under the sponsored Student route.

Awaiting and responding to your offer

Once the University receives your application you will receive a communication from us acknowledging this. You’ll also be given your London Metropolitan University application ID and details about using our applicant portal. At this point your application will enter the pending decision/consideration stage and we’ll communicate with you again, either to request more information (such as a qualification transcript, portfolio, or piece of written work) for assessment, or to advise you of our decision.


If you’re successful in receiving an offer from us you’ll receive a communication detailing a conditional or unconditional offer and this will contain further information and instruction. If your application is unsuccessful we will also contact you advising you of this and our reasons for the decision. Read more information and advice for offer holders.

Immigration and enrolment

After obtaining an unconditional offer you’ll need to focus on making preparations to join the University and come to the UK (if you’re not already here). You’ll receive further information about when and where to arrive and how to attend your course enrollment closer to the enrollment period of your course.


You should be considering your accommodation and finances as soon as possible before the start of term, and you should also be aware of, and be prepared to meet, any immigration requirements such as obtaining a student visa at the earliest opportunity. You can find a variety of information about moving to London  on our immigration and arrival advice pages.
