Doctoral Society

The Doctoral Society of Greenwich aims to create a space where students and researchers can share information and opportunities.

Who are we?

Mission Statement:

To inspire a supportive community of doctoral researchers for doctoral researchers at the University of Greenwich


The main hope of the Doctoral Society is to provide a ‘hub’ for all postgraduate students at the University of Greenwich. The Doctoral Society is entirely student-led and has the potential to create a meaningful difference to the PhD cohort, by providing excellent opportunities for development. The Society's main aims may be summarised as follows:

  • To connect early-career academics with various stakeholders while fostering direct engagement with senior researchers from multiple disciplines.
  • To create awareness of the actual contribution made by PhDs, EdDs, Post-Doctoral researchers and ECRs within and outside of the University. 
  • To expand our networking opportunities and create social events that bring all doctoral students together in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.


Committee and working groups: 

  • Research and Enterprise Committee group (see here).
  • PGR ECR Forum (see here).
  • 3MT® competition working group (see here).
