Doctoral College

Vision and strategy

How the Doctoral College supports and enhances the postgraduate research student experience, and how we are developing our Vision and five year Strategy.

The University of Edinburgh Doctoral College was founded in January 2020 to support all postgraduate researchers and supervisors across the University.

Our purpose

The Doctoral College supports and enhances the postgraduate research student experience in a number of different ways:

  • By bringing together staff from across the University who work with PGR students to work collaboratively and share practice
  • By coordinating training, support, events and opportunities for PGRs
  • By representing postgraduate research at University–level committees and groups
  • By supporting and enhancing PGR student representation structures and voice

Our vision and strategy

We are currently working on the Doctoral College Vision and five year strategy.

This is being co-created with staff and students, through a series of focus groups and consultations.

Further information on how to get involved with this will be posted here in due course.
