Warwick’s Graduate School becomes the Doctoral College
The Graduate School is changing its focus and its name – from now on we will be called the Doctoral College and will focus almost exclusively on Postgraduate Research students (including master’s students on a research degree). We are marking this change with a new website https://warwick.ac.uk/services/dc/
Initially this means a change in name and the launch of a new-look website. Over the course of 2019/20 we will hand over the few Taught Postgraduate activities we are involved in. Over time we will be increasing our activities in support of the research degree student experience in its totality.
Our ultimate aims are that:
· Warwick should be able to recruit and retain the best PGR students in the world;
· Warwick research students consistently say that the University meets (if not exceeds) their expectations;
· the Doctoral College is accessible and available when needed, and proactively intervening when appropriate;
· the University recognises the strategic importance of research students to both education and research.
In tandem with this development, a working group has been formed under the Board of Graduate Studies to review the strategic approach to Taught Postgraduate provision, reporting its conclusions to Senate in summer 2020.
