Loughborough Doctoral College


All Doctoral Researchers at both our London and Loughborough campuses are welcomed into the Doctoral College.

You'll benefit from an extensive doctoral training programme, alongside our suite of activities designed to support you at every stage of the doctoral process.  We link with other specialist support services across the University, such as the Careers Network, to give you access to help and advice and work with colleagues across academic schools to attract external funding to support doctoral study.
