London varsity opens office in Chennai

Our Bureau

Chennai , April 29

THE London Metropolitan University (LMU) has opened an office in Chennai, the second in the country after Delhi.

The Chennai office will cater to the southern region, which sends the maximum number of students from India.

Out of the 250 Indian students studying at the University, about 60 per cent are from south, Ms Adrienne Clarke, University's Head of International Recruitment, told Business Line.

The presence of the British Deputy High Commission in Chennai was another reason to start the office. The University is also planning to start an office in Mumbai, she said. LMU was formed in August 1, 2002 by the merger of the University of North London and London Guildhall University.

According to Ms Clarke, over the last three years, there has been a 15-20 per cent increase year-on-year in the number of students coming from India.

Mr Raman Sharma, Regional Director (India, Sri Lanka and Nepal), said that LMU plans to start a placement cell in India to help students returning home get a job here.
