Why study this course?

A PhD at London Met is conducted purely by research. Each PhD is the unique development of a student’s individual research project, conducted under the guidance of at least two supervisory members of staff with expertise in the research area. A PhD can be pursued in any area of research within the University where suitable expertise is available to support the proposed research. The University provides a supportive framework for research and each student’s work is carefully overseen. It is also possible to study a PhD via distance learning at London Met.

More about this course

Each PhD is an individual and unique project. The research may be conducted in any of the University’s disciplines (or across disciplines) where there is appropriate research expertise.

Although the degree is awarded for research with no taught component, research students are provided with research training and have access to any master's level module that will facilitate the research.

Your progress is closely supported by your supervisors and School. You will be encouraged to attend conferences, write papers and publish while pursuing your research.

The University has strong links with industry, business, the legal profession, and governmental and non-governmental organisations that facilitate your research and future career.

Research students are an important part of the academic community at London Metropolitan University and are included in all conferences, lecture series and research seminar series.

The University has a large number of specialist research areas, many (although not all) of our research students are associated with one of these. These include: The Global Policy Institute, The Centre for Communications Technology, The Intelligent Systems Research Centre, Statistics Operational research and Mathematics, and The Cellular and Molecular Immunology Research Centre; just to name a few.

Staff undertake research and offer supervision in areas including:

3D design
architecture for rapid change and scarce resources

Where this course can take you

Many people with an PhD become lecturers, teachers or researchers, but these are by no means the only destinations.

Depending on your discipline, you may go into industry (this is frequently the case for graduates in biological or computer science), the City (business and law graduates), public sector management and/or policy-making (social science and business graduates), international governmental organisations (social science and business graduates), the social professions or non-governmental organisations.

Many of our graduates are mid-career and use their degree for career enhancement in (for services, education, counselling, health and social care, or diplomacy.
