London Metropolitan update
The new issue of Red Pepper has an article by me on London Metropolitan University, which tries to set what has been happening there in the broader context of the new terrain of English Higher Education.
Significantly, it has now been confirmed that the partnership agreement struck between London Met and London School of Business and Finance, which was central to certain aspects of London Met’s travails with the UK Border Agency, has now been dissolved.
The press statement reads:
London Metropolitan University (London Met) and London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) have reached a mutual agreement to discontinue their working relationship.
In April 2012 London Met and LSBF began working together to deliver quality, industry-relevant, higher education to students.
Both parties have agreed that, although much had been achieved during this period, given the basis on which the partnership had begun, and the changes in the Higher Education market, it would be better for each institution to take independent paths.
