New v-c at London Met

January 23, 2004

Brian Roper has been appointed vice-chancellor of London Metropolitan University, which was created by the merger of the University of North London and London Guildhall University in 2002.

Mr Roper, former vice-chancellor of North London, had been joint head of London Met with Roderick Floud, who was vice-chancellor of Guildhall.
