Doctoral Society

Doctoral Society create a space where Students and researchers can share information, opportunities and create a community that presently appears to be lacking.



Who are we?

Mission statement:

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

 

Aims of Doctoral Society:

The main hope of the Doctoral Society is to provide a ‘hub’ for all postgraduate students here at the University of Greenwich, to act as space where PhD Students can share information, opportunities and create a community that presently appears to be lacking. The Doctoral Society would be entirely student-led and has the potential to create a meaningful difference to the PhD cohort, and give excellent opportunities for student development.

 

The objectives are:

  1. To connect young academic with various stakeholders while fostering direct engagement between senior and young researchers from multiple disciplines.
  2. To create an awareness of the actual contribution that can be made by PhD outside of academia through means of organising various events yearly such as internal and external conference, skill development seminar and networking opportunities with industry. This will enable the building of a network between PhD's and Post-Doctorates as well as stakeholders externally.
  3. It is also essential to create an easily accessible social networking where PhD student can connect with the various field in a relaxing and fun atmosphere ranging from small-scale gathering to larger scale parties.

Background: 

The idea of a Doctoral Society was initiated by a highly motivated PGR student (Ihator Brown, Faculty of Business) and supported by our Research and Enterprise Training Institute (RETI) and the Students Union. A series of meetings were held between the student, RETI and the SU to undertake the development of the Society and its Terms of Reference.
