The University as it is today was created in 2002 with the merging  of London Guildhall University and the University of North London, the first merger between two universities in the UK. Its roots, however, lie firmly in the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men in 1848.


London Met has been providing education in the heart of London since 1848. The Schools, Colleges and Widening Participation team continues the University's outreach work of over a century and a half, as part of the University's enduring commitment to social responsibility and social justice.


London Met has a vibrant research community and an active Postgraduate Research Student Society. Approximately 200 students are conducting research at London Met on either a full-time or part-time basis.
