What our students say “I was anxious about the whole journey, but it proved to be a great decision that changed my life entirely. Soon after I started my first set of modules, I knew the styles and methods of teaching practiced by the lecturers suited my personal style - very practical and everything explained with real life examples. I made tons of great friends on London Met, and three of them later become my business partners.” Ondrej Mrklas, Company Director of Czech Industry Company, 2015 “The course I’m doing has been extremely rewarding and greatly helped me to achieve my potential. The international aspects of the courses have been especially interesting.” National Student Survey
