Research opportunities

London South Bank University has 14 Research Centres and 33 Research Groups, each delivering a wide range of applied research, often with commercial partners. For example – the University’s pioneering research in foot and ankle biometrics helped develop products for global brand Fitflop, while research on cooling the London Underground has been incorporated into a £500m upgrade of the tube system.

Following the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) the University emerged as one of the top three modern universities in London after 73% of its research was given the two highest ratings (4* and 3*) for 'impact' –an assessment of the reach and significance a research project has achieved.

The London Doctoral Academy is the new home for the University’s postgraduate research students – and any funded studentships will be listed here. The Academy supports and develops professional researchers who are driven to make a difference in the world, whether that’s by influencing government policy or changing the way industries work.
