Doctoral Society

The Doctoral Society of Greenwich aims to create a space where students and researchers can share information and opportunities, and can create a community that used to be missing at our university.

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:

  1. To connect early-career academics with various stakeholders while fostering direct engagement with senior researchers from multiple disciplines.
  2. To create awareness of the actual contribution that can be made by PhDs, EdDs, Post-Doctoral researchers, ECRs outside of academia by means of various events yearly, such as internal and external conferences, skills development seminars, and networking opportunities with industries.
  3. To establish easily accessible social networking opportunities in a relaxing and fun atmosphere.
