Events coming up

This guide highlights events that are relevant to doctoral students.

Some will help you academically, by giving you an opportunity to explore ideas and showcase your research. Others have been organised by fellow doctoral students to encourage you to recharge and have some fun. Many of the events are supported, and attended, by the Doctoral Welcome Team and are a great opportunity to hear about their doctoral experiences.

Keep an eye out for our weekly newsletter, the Doctoral Digest which has information on all of the events that are available to you.

Don't forget to take up other opportunities for learning and networking through our Doctoral Skills professional development programme.

Can't find what you're looking for?

If you'd like to get more involved with your doctoral community, but haven't seen an activity that takes your interest, why not organise your own?

The Doctoral College Activities Fund offers funding up to £500 to support the development of interdisciplinary activities that bring together doctoral students across disciplines and/or institutions. As well as delivering the activity itself, planning, running and managing an activity budget is a great opportunity to develop transferable skills as part of your professional development.
