Wide-ranging and applied research
We are a top London modern university for research impact (REF2014) and we apply our broad, diverse research to current global issues, with direct outcomes for you and the programmes you study.
Our schools are involved in a wide range of research projects, many involving collaborations with business or public bodies, tackling some of today’s most testing issues. This has been instrumental in developing global brands and products such as FitFlop, which our pioneering research in foot and ankle biomechanics helped develop, as well improving public services, like our research into cooling the London Underground that’s been incorporated into a £500 million upgrade of the tube system.
We share our research in the classroom as case studies and we’ll bring in experts as guest speakers, and lecturers use their research to help guide you in projects, lending their expert knowledge to your success.
Our central location close to London's cultural South Bank means you have easy access to all the opportunities and attractions that the capital has to offer. Elephant and Castle is vibrant and exciting, with plenty of shops, bars and cafés to enjoy in the local area. Our main campus is close to mainline stations London Waterloo and London Bridge, and on the doorstep of Elephant and Castle Underground station.
