London Metropolitan University, commonly known as London Met, is a public research university in London, England. The University of North London and London Guildhall University merged in 2002 to create the university. The University’s roots go back to 1848.

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, 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.

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.
