Master of Philosophy of London Metropolitan University may be conducted in any of the University’s disciplines (or across disciplines) where there is appropriate research expertise.
There is a distance learning option available.
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.
After the course
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.
