That's why London Met is a great university to go to – it's so multicultural that you get immersed in different cultures right away, which makes you more aware and tolerant, and encourages you to see situations from other perspectives. The environment at London Met is very supportive when it comes to extracurricular activities; you're encouraged to take up volunteering or take part in the Science Society's activities."
