Program description

Doctor of Philosophy - MPhil / PhD (Full-time)

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.

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.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • A good honours degree from a UK university or equivalent (first or upper-second class), although applicants will usually tend to have obtained a master's degree before entry

Candidates with other qualifications are considered on their merits.

To study a degree at London Met, you must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. If you require a Tier 4 student visa you may need to provide the results of a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.
