Poor choice of study. The staff are unhelpful, uninterested and the classroom has a bullying culture to which every senior member of staff turns a blind eye to. DO NOT COME HERE TO STUDY - they only want your money!

I have just finished Londonmet and I honestly wish I could turn back the clock and gone to another university. I do not know where to start as there were so many problems on my course it is hard for me to remember all of the issues I and other students had. The School of social professions is absolutely dire in terms of lecturers/Tutors and how the department is run, students are seen as commodities and an inconvenience all they seem to want is your money and nothing else. The communication was the worst ever, tutors not turning up and not informing students prior to attending their classes. No support, understanding or kindness shown in any format to students who were constantly struggling to understand what was expected of them. The timetable was not fit for purpose in-fact it confused you so much you would be better not even looking at it The marks for finished essays and grades were very unfair and unjust it was like they did not want you to succeed, money paid for a bad degree.

All the university cares about it getting your money and now new and innovative ideas. Do not entertain the possibility of attending this university the lecturers do not care for the students as it is unorganised half the time lecturers turn up late, or the guest lecturers would not even turn up.

No one cares at this place about the students. I can imagine the staff are under pressure from management, to do a million and one things, so caring about their most valuable asset 'the students' falls by the wayside as an afterthought. The level of English spoken by some of the lecturers is shocking, and I can get better conversations out of an uber driver than most of them. Heaven help you if you need to ask a question about your work, most of them think the students are far too beneath them to engage with, let alone offer their time to talk you through something. I am still waiting for YouTube to offer out degrees, for the amount of time I am told 'look up youtube! Look up youtube!!' how about you teach !!! big waste of time and money wish I could pull out and get my money back. Vocation courses from GA would be more informative and career structured. I know that I will need to go there because I want to learn my subject area.

London Metropolitan University is bottom of the rank (131) in 2019. This university still charges the same fees as other top universities in London. LMU University is deliberately requesting staff spread misinformation to students about the finance available to them. London Metropolitan University wants to spread disinformation verbally, so nobody can prove it and they can deny it. If you are not providing finance why not advertise and make it public via your website, unless you have something unlawful to hide. LMU University is more interested in making their bank accounts/ student finance budget look great not helping students in need, after all directors are not going to question extra cash. LMU want to make their bank accounts look bigger, they have finance which they are not giving out, instead requesting students seek other avenues. LMU University state they have poor teaching and students are getting below average grades. LMU states it hopes to get students getting firs

Masters courses there are basically you doing all of the running around for tutorials and precise module specifications. I brought this up, complaining constantly to the people in charge and it got to the point where they ganged up on me, giving me an ultimatum. They care only for money, they don't care about you. They even had the cheek to say that because I got accepted without an interview, that this shouldnt have happened.

London Metropolitan University is awful. The content has grammatical spelling mistakes. London Metropolitan is the worst university in London. The environment is trashy, the teachers can't speak English and have poor communication skills. I only just joined, I would rather work in a fast food restaurant until I can apply for another university. The government should do us all a favor and close this place down. I want a refund, as the goods in this case is misleading. I would be better back at work, in a low paid job or even on Universal Credit.

Terrible... Students are a commodity, zero respect. Academics quit on a monthly basis and you end up being taught by recent graduates desperate for work. Just go somewhere else. Low morale amongst staff, they are being treated badly by management and then forward this frustration to students.

Do not study social work here! The staff are often very unhelpful and are on a power trip. They treat students poorly and unprofessionally. They gang up against students so you feel powerless and that there is no one on your side and there is nothing you can do. Your grievances are not heard. The allocation of placements is often poor. Many students still waiting for placements. No explanations for delays but that you should just wait. It has been an anxious experience for me. Regret choosing to study with this institution. There seems to be no accountability for the staff who work there, many of whom look and act like they don't like working there. Choose at your peril.

Badly run, factory farm environment, stack em high and sell it for profit approach to education. Stampeding encouraged to sign up for courses on first day. No one who works there will know the answer to your queries, Staff are rude and very often seem like they don't want to be there, far too many TA's who struggle with conversing in English teaching full semesters instead of employed staff. It is absolutely a con to go here. It is a money making business, I really regret not doing an apprenticeship or training scheme, I wouldn't have debt and I would be so much further along in my career by now. What a waste of time and money. Stay well clear of this institution, the campus's are in high crime areas and it's definitely not the university experience you get in other parts of the UK.

Being a student at London Met might be challenging at times, but still very rewarding. University has a big focus on student employability and is full assistive staff that genuinely want students to succeed. I managed to get a professional qualification alongside my marketing communications degree, as well as work experience that helped me to graduate with not just an academic knowledge, but also practical experience, that certainly gives positive differentiation once in the job market. It is also worth mentioning that the university is actually improving their facilities and what it has to offer to students, from teaching approaches and student services to events and other activities.
