What is a Met Card?
When you enrol at Manchester Metropolitan University, you will be issued with a met card. You can top up the card with money to spend on a variety of goods and services in and around campus, some of these include books, IT services, stationary, MMU print services and University Cafes. Also if you qualify for our Student Support Package, you can also choose to have the money credited to your met card.
Student Support Package
The Student Support Package grants qualifying students up to £1000 per year, this is available to all MMU students who are studying a full-time undergraduate course with tuition fees of £9000 (this also applies to both degrees with an integral foundation year and integrated Mater's degrees).
To be eligible for the support package, you meet the following criteria:
- Your household income is lower or equal to £25,000
- You consent to share your household income with MMU
- You have a UK Student Support Number issued by Student Finance
- You are paying the higher rate of tuition fees
You don't need to apply for the support package separately, as you will be automatically be considered when you apply for student finance. The aim is to assist students in reducing their overall costs when they need it the most.
