Course content

Nearly three quarters of London South Bank University's (LSBU) research projects were awarded the two highest possible ratings for 'impact' by the latest university research excellence exercise, the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. Our scientists in the School of Applied Sciences work in multidisciplinary teams to target major societal challenges in the areas of human health, well-being, performance and behaviour. We apply theory in theses areas to contemporary real world issues by undertaking innovative and rigorous science.

We focus on globally regarded, theoretical and applied research with ‘real world’ impact. Our teaching is fully informed by contemporary research, and our excellence is reinforced by outstanding research facilities which enable both staff and students to undertake cutting edge studies with the most up-to-date equipment and facilities.

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community.

A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team.
