Course summary

Why study this course?

A Master of Philosophy (MPhil) at London Metropolitan University is conducted purely by research. Each MPhil 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.

An MPhil 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 within which each student’s work is carefully overseen.

More about this course

Each MPhil 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, you'll be provided with training and have access to any master's level module that would facilitate the research.

Your progress is closely supported by your supervisor and the School. You'll 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 will aid 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, and 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
architecture practice and theory
banking, finance and economics
curation and socially engaged art practices
cyber security
design for cultural commons
education with a commitment to social justice
fine art and photography
intelligent systems
interiors and environmental design
learning and teaching in higher education
migration and migrants
molecular sciences
nutrition
politics
sustainable and regeneration design
urban policy
violence against women and children and the emergence of trafficking
visual communication
work and working lives

Where this course can take you

People with a research degree may become lecturers, teachers or researchers, but these are by no means the only potential 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 research graduates are mid-career and use their degree for career enhancement in (for example) the police or security services, education, counselling, health and social care, or diplomacy.
