New name for Met…same shoddy reputation

They did get some praise for ‘film-making’


Lowly Leeds Met officially became Leeds Beckett this week, as it battles to change its image.

Desperate officials at the poly said the new name would make it sound like a “modern, dynamic and vibrant university” rather than an “a lower quality product”.

But sadly the Sunday Times doesn’t agree – the paper handed Met/Beckett its lowest ever ranking in its University Guide and gave them a terrible write-up.

They branded Met/Beckett the 17th worst uni in the country to get a job, and wrote: “Leeds Beckett will need more than a superficial name change to recover from its lowest ranking in our table of 111 this year, down eight places”.

There is a little praise for the “famously lively entertainments scene” though, and a photo of “eager students at Leeds Metropolitan learning about the art of film-making”.

They must be members of the rugby club…
