Doctoral College


To all of you who are starting your PhD soon, we welcome you to Warwick. Starting a PhD is an exciting step into the unknown at the best of times. Starting during a pandemic is exceptionally unusual and potentially unnerving.

To help you get started, we will be running an online programme of events and activities during the first term. Please check back here to find out more in August.


Well done

As the end of another academic year draws nearer, we want to say well done to all our Postgraduate Researchers for keeping going through the toughest times. You may not have been able to achieve what you wanted to in the last few months for a whole variety of reasons, but you have kept going and you will get back on track. We are here to support you and only you, every month of the year. If you want to connect with other PG Researchers, develop your research practice or get some practical advice, please look at the PGR calendar to see what is available during July and August. If you have any questions, please contact us.
