Research at London Met

High-quality research

Our high-quality research forms a core part of the life of London Met and underpins all that we do: whether teaching thousands of undergraduates, supervising several hundred students on PhD and Professional Doctorate programmes, or conducting funded research or working with our many partners. London Met is home to a number of research centres, groups and units that provide a focal point for staff and research students. They give definition and direction to the work we do.

Engaging with our local partners and the wider world

We value research for contributing to our shared quest to make a better society; we also embrace it for the opportunities it provides for our students and staff to achieve their full potential. Research at London Met helps us engage with our local stakeholders in Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets, Greater London, the UK and worldwide, embracing a multitude of enquiries into new knowledge in the arts, business, science and social sciences.

Our research community

Building and supporting an inclusive, diverse and open research community is important to us and we encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary initiatives among both our staff and student populations. And our newly launched Graduate School and Research and Postgraduate Office are there to support research activity in all areas and at all levels. To ensure the rest of the University is aware of these research initiatives and can actively contribute, we promote their work through interdisciplinary seminars, workshops and discussions. Our annual Research Student and Staff Conference also gives the entire research community an opportunity to showcase their work.
