FRESHERS & RESULTS… EEK!!!

Happy Results Day!!

We just can’t believe that it’s already nearly September… just Notting Hill Carnival and Reading Festival left before we start thinking about studying again!!

Freshers planning is nearly complete… with parties, activities and fun opportunities for our London Met students to get stuck in, make new friends and see what uni life has to offer.

Keep Calm On Results Day

Don’t panic!

 

As I write this thousands of A level students are jumping happily in the air, results in hand, to the joy of local press photographers eager for a snap of our future students. Hope you get some good shots guys.

So very well done to all who got their grades. We’ll be seeing you soon, 23rd September is when Freshers starts!

For those who didn’t, there are loads of options. The uni might accept you anyway if the grades are close enough, so give them a ring. Otherwise there is the clearing system… clearing doesn’t need to be daunting, and it can make you realise there are other courses you’d love to do that maybe you didn’t consider before. I have mates who’s enviable careers started out on a decision they made in clearing. There are lots of Clearing Planners and online guides so get involved and get that place. LMU has some great clearing places on different courses, so make sure to give us a ring on 08000324441!

Freshers starts 23rd Sept at London Met!
