About Us

MetSU is here to support, represent and enrich the lives of London Met students. 

Students’ unions are separate to universities and are led by students for students.  They exist to represent your needs and interests whilst you are studying whilst also providing lots of opportunities, activities and events to improve your time at university. 

As a student at London Metropolitan University, you are automatically a member of London Met Students’ Union and can get involved straight away.

We are a democratic organisation led by elected officers, overseen by a Board of Trustees and supported by a team of professional staff.

Your Officers

An officer is a student who has been elected by other students to hold a leadership position within the Students’ Union.

At London Met Students’ Union we have:

  • 4 full-time officer positions -  a president and 3 positions representing the 6 schools; and

  • 5 part-time officer positions representing 4 liberation groups  - Women students, BAME students, LGTBQ+ students and Disabled students

Full-time officer positions are paid and you can either take a year out of your studies to be one or become one immediately after the end of your course.  Part-time officers hold their positions whilst also studying.
You can find out more here.

Representation and campaigning

Your elected student officers make sure your voice is heard at the University and represent you on the issues that affect you within the Students’ Union, the University, in the local community and at a national level. They also lead on campaigns to bring about change on the issues that matter to students and work to ensure that students have the services and opportunities you need to help you succeed. Find out more here.

Student Reps are your academic representatives on your course.  They raise academic and related issues on behalf of students on your course to teaching staff, the School and the University and act as a communication channel between you, your students’ union and the university as well as being involved in shaping changes to the way the University is run.  Find out more here.
Union Council ensures your students’ union is doing what students want. It's run for students, by students and is made up of student representatives elected from and by the student body.  Find out more here.
