International students are permitted to enter the UK to study at London Metropolitan University. Currently, there is a limit on the number of international students that the university can enrol.

In line with Home Office policy, the university is now subject to a probationary period in order to build a track record of compliance with the new students as they enrol.

The Home Office has overturned a ban on London Metropolitan University admitting students from outside the European Union after agreeing it has made sufficient improvements to its monitoring systems.

Home Office inspection teams looked at areas of concern that led to the revocation of the university’s licence last year, and have worked with university staff to ensure they have appropriate processes for recruiting and monitoring their international students.

“We have worked closely with university staff to ensure that London Met standards were improved”, said Immigration Minister Mark Harper.

Advice and guidance on applying for a student visa can be found on the London Metropolitan University guidance page.
