Information and support during Coronavirus
The safety and well-being of our Postgraduate Research (PGR) students and staff remains our top priority. While most supervision, training and events will continue to be held online for the foreseeable future, we are able to provide enhanced access to resources this term.
In addition, you will find below a list of FAQs and information on other services and how to access them.
We will continue to send out regular communications. It is important that you check your London Met email on a regular basis or put a divert in place so that you can receive the emails to your personal email address. You should also regularly check resources, information and timetables on the Doctoral Studies Weblearn page.
The Research and Postgraduate Office (RPO) will continue to work remotely to provide guidance and advice to students during this time. You can reach the RPO via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Specific information on other services and how you can access them is listed below.

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. Have a look at what is available, including how to book an appointment with a counsellor during lockdown.
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.
