Our postgraduate programmes are informed by current thinking and practice and many are designed by employers and professionals. To best meet your needs, we offer most courses on both a full and part-time basis. We offer work experience and volunteering opportunities, free careers advice, and numerous networking events to help you stand out in the job market.

Whether you’re looking to change career direction, improve your job prospects or simply pursue a passion, London Met is an excellent choice for postgraduate study.

We offer a diverse range of taught and research degrees that will enhance your employability and help to improve your earning potential. A report by The Sutton Trust, ‘The Postgraduate Premium’ (February 2013) found that on average, those with a Master’s degree earned around £5,500 more per annum than someone with a Bachelor’s degree.

We understand that postgraduate study is a big commitment. The application process, fees, the work/life balance and the step up in terms of learning and workload, it’s a lot to think about - which is why we support you from the moment you enquire to the moment you get your first job or your promotion.

We have a range of student support services in place to help you make the most of your degree including study groups to guide you through research techniques or dissertation writing. We can also provide advice on funding, accommodation, careers and have a dedicated International Office for students from overseas.
