Information and support during Coronavirus

All of London Met’s teaching has now moved online and, although our buildings are currently closed, the University remains very much open. In addition to teaching, all student support and professional service departments are working remotely to continue to support students during this time. 


If you have any questions or are not sure how you should proceed with your research projects and/or RSPG submissions, please liaise with your supervisors on academic matters in the first instance, and you can also contact the Research and Postgraduate Office (RPO) at

We will send out regular communications as the situation develops but there are also a number of resources which you can access that will provide clear guidance on the measures in place during lockdown. It is important that you check your email on a regular basis or put a divert in place so that you can receive the emails to your personal email address. 

The website has a Coronavirus information page which is regularly updated with a specific section for PGR students. In addition you will find below a list of other services that continue to provide support during this time. 


Data collection for projects with research ethics approval may only proceed with strict adherence to government guidelines about social distancing measures and group meetings. This means that many data collections will either have to be postponed or carried out remotely. Please notify your RERP chair of any changes to your project.

If your project includes in-situ data collection abroad, please consult your RERP chair. Both UK government guidelines and local guidelines need to be observed. You also need university approval for any travel abroad.

Where a book is needed to support your research studies and it is not currently available via the Library Catalogue, you may place a request using this form. While they will not be able to guarantee that all suggestions will be purchasable, they will do their best to acquire the titles requested.

Subject guides and research support can be found here


During the University building closure, online IT services are still available as normal. The IT help and support pages will give you further information on what's available remotely and who to speak to if you have any problems. 


The University has many services and initiatives to help you to maintain and improve your physical and mental wellbeing while you are a student at the University. You can see what is available, including how to book an appointment with a counsellor during lockdown, here
