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
