London Metropolitan University has a rich history with strong educational roots dating back to 1848.The University as it is today was created in 2002 with the merging of London Guildhall University and the University of North London, the first merger between two universities in the UK.
Students studying in any of our schools have access to all our communal facilities (such as libraries, social spaces, cafés and eateries), and each school also has areas of expertise which might mean you use specialist resources as part of your course. Our schools have links to relevant businesses in sectors related to their specialist subject areas, and the schools are also hotbeds of research undertaken by University academics and PhD students.
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.
