Byline: Niki Chesworth

LONDON Metropolitan University has always been a forwardlooking institution. Its business incubator, Accelerator, was one of the first enterprise hubs in what would become Tech City, while it is leading the university sector when it comes to sustainability.

In terms of teaching excellence, London Met is pulling ahead, and is one of the leading universities in London, with 65 per cent of its academics holding a teaching qualification, compared with just 27 per cent at London's Russell Group universities.

Its innovative ethos is also well-represented in the London Met curriculum, which is based on meeting the needs of the modern world -- training graduates to do the jobs that are in demand around the globe or are arising in emerging sectors.

Students will particularly benefit from the university's exciting One Campus, One Community project, which is seeing it invest PS125 million to transform its Islington campus.

"We'll be using the project in our curriculum, with the campus effectively becoming a 'living lab' to give students first-hand experience of how sustainability initiatives are applied in the real world," adds Ward.

"We are living in a data-centric world, where information technology and associated communications' networks and services pervade every aspect of our lives," says Professor Karim Ouazzane, from London Met's School of Computing and Digital Media.

"This makes the protection of our digital assets and activities in cyberspace of critical importance and this will require huge recruitment of graduates. So it probably comes as no surprise that 95 per cent of students who studied cyber security get a job straight away."

London Met isn't only interested in online security -- the university also has a strong curriculum across criminology, policing, crime prevention and law, as well as a range of courses in the social sciences and professions. …
