    I worked at London Metropolitan University

    Pros

    London Met is a very internationally diverse university, so it makes for very interesting students and classroom conversation. Everyone comes from a different background and can contribute something unique.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, during my time of employment, the arts were being cut heavily and tensions were very high. Because of all the cuts, departments were stretched too thin and way beyond their resources. The classroom sizes were huge in an attempt to get more income in and as a result, the teacher-student ratio suffered.

    Advice to Management

    I think there is still a high demand for liberal arts courses, and so, by cutting them so drastically, you are potentially losing students. In addition, because of being stretched so then, some of the best permanent staff left. There should be reward for being an excellent teacher, not punishment.

    I worked at London Metropolitan University for less than a year

    Pros

    The senior staff truly puts the wellbeing of the student ambassadors first and are very supportive. The pay is very good for a student role and the scope for learning is endless.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it can be difficult to pick up jobs and you really have to be applying for everything to make decent money at the end of the month, but the management does its best to make sure everyone gets an equal number of working hours.
