How we support Postgraduate Researchers

The Centre for Doctoral Studies is responsible for the postgraduate research student experience and ensuring doctoral candidates are equipped to excel - in their research, in their careers, and beyond. 

We achieve this by working with and on behalf of research students in a number of ways, setting and enhancing standards, providing support and training, and improving provision for postgraduate students across King's.

Our focus is on four key areas: 

Support – improving support services & providing timely and useful information

Funding – attracting and resourcing research students

Training – offering high quality personal, professional, academic, & career development opportunities

Community – nurturing a collaborative & welcoming environment for all research students
