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.
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. For more information about English qualifications please see our English language requirements.
If you need (or wish) to improve your English before starting your degree, the University offers a Pre-sessional Academic English course to help you build your confidence and reach the level of English you require.
The University only offers supervision to candidates if there is adequate available supervisory expertise in the area of the research project.
