Once you have enrolled at London Met you become a member of the Students’ Union. The Students’ Union is here to support, represent and enrich the lives of London Met students. MetSU (London Met Students’ Union) is a democratic organisation overseen by a Board of Trustees, supported by a team of elected officers and professional staff.
Representation and Campaigning
It provides representation to students on issues affecting them and will lobby the likes of the university and government to improve the opportunities and prospects for all students. The SU Student Council acts as a forum for issues affecting students to be discussed and addressed. The SU also raises awareness on issues affecting students and runs a wide range of campaigns and events from Black History Month to Multi Faith Week. The Union also manages the Student Academic Reps (StARs) scheme which ensures students have a say on their course and have a vehicle to raise conveners and contribute to course development.
The Union can support you if you are facing issues with your academic work and need advice and information. You can contact us through SU reception if you have any of the below issues:
Academic misconduct, applications and appeals for mitigating circumstances, support at hearings and meetings, assistance with academic complaints
The Union is the home of competitive sport within the university. You can join the #SeaOfRed and play for any one of a number of sports including mens and womens football, basketball or rugby, mixed volleyball or other sports including badminton, cheerleading, cricket, dance, futsal or netball. You can also get involved in our annual MetSU Sport Mash Up.
The Union is also the home of many diverse societies that cover a range of interests and lifestyles. You can join an existing society or get together with others sharing your interest and form a new one. There are over 50 societies covering everything from religion to politics.
Verve is the Union media and gives students an opportunity to get involved with the SU magazine or radio station.
