London Metropolitan University Research Institutes



The impact of our Educational Research has been very highly rated in the recent Research Excellent Framework (REF), higher than any other post-1992 university, with 40% rated 'world-leading' (4*) and 60% as 'internationally excellent'.

Over England as a whole, London Met's Education research is joint 12th for impact (sharing the spot with the University of Manchester). It outranks Russell Group universities such as Exeter, Birmingham and Warwick in this regard. Overall, over half of our Education submission to REF 2014 was rated as world leading or internationally excellent.

This fulfils both the University's mission - education that makes a difference - and the founding leitmotif of the Institute for Policy Studies in Education (IPSE) when it was set up by the University 14 years ago to carry out research on educational policies that impacted on equality and social change.
