Everything You Need to Know

We understand the uncertainties that the current circumstances have for our returning students and those planning to join Belfast Met next semester. Here you will find support and information for applicants and students, apprentices and trainees, parents and carers and businesses.

As we re-imagine College life alongside this pandemic, you can look forward to vibrant, inspiring and productive time, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Belfast Metropolitan College. Although our buildings are closed, we are still open for business.

Update 19.08.2020

** Calling all BTEC Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Learners**

Late this afternoon we were informed by Pearson, the Awarding Organisation for BTECs that they are carrying out a review of all BTEC grades.

Many of you will have already received results and some of you will receive them in the post tomorrow. Please note that the grades that have been issued to date may not be your final grades.

We have been assured that Pearson will work urgently to complete the review and to reissue these grades. Pearson wishes to reassure BTEC learners that no grades will go down as part of this review.

As soon as the College receives more information from Pearson, we will share it with you.

Best wishes.
Executive Team
