Moving to one campus
Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University
campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.
Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.
All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of- the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.
You will be required to have:-A minimum of a 2.2 degree in any subject discipline (or equivalent)GCSE Maths and English grade C (grade 4 from 2017) or above (or equivalent eg IELTS 6)-At least two years’ postgraduate experience in a managerial role (evidence of this will need to be confirmed by two letters of reference) A full university application form will need to be submitted. This includes a detailed statement to support your application to the course. You should also submit an up-to-date CV and copies of award certificates.
