Advice for students affected by closure of GSM London


Following the announcement that GSM London will close in September, CU London and Coventry University London have identified courses and put support in place to enable GSM students to transition onto a Coventry University undergraduate or postgraduate programme and continue their studies in London at either CU London in Barking and Dagenham or at Coventry University London in the City.

We are also in the process of developing options which, if successful, will enable us to deliver some courses in Greenwich. We will continue to provide updates on our website. Should you wish to receive the information directly, please complete the enquiry form below, to record your contact details and we will provide you with updates in relation to further options which we anticipate will become available shortly.

We aim to offer transition support during the academic cycle 2019/20 to ensure that the fee paid by GSM London students up until September 2020 is at the same level they would have paid to GSM London.

GSM London students who decide to join CU London (undergraduate) or Coventry University London (postgraduate) will benefit from:

  • Credit recognition for their completed studies to date
  • One year bursaries for all approved GSM students to support them by offering unaffected tuition costs for 2019/20
  • Multiple start dates and flexible delivery options
  • Studying a degree from Coventry University, a TEF Gold, UK top 15 Guardian university

Further details can be found in the CU London brochure and Coventry University London brochure.


To get started today simply call our dedicated hotline on 020 3873 0663. The hotline will be open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm and over the weekend from 10am to 4pm.

If you have made the decision to complete your studies with Coventry University London or CU London, please complete the simple application form.

After completing the application form, to secure your place you will need to provide the following:

  1. A copy of your passport or alternate ID documentation;
  2. A copy of your academic transcript.

Note: Students that are currently studying in the summer session at GSM can make an application immediately but will need to provide their full academic transcript upon completion of their studies in order for us to apply the full credit recognition. Once we have this information they will receive their unconditional offer.


Our campuses are open Monday to Friday for you to visit. You can either contact us to schedule a time or drop-in anytime between 9am and 5pm.
