6.3 Loughborough University Doctoral College

All postgraduate research students, whether based in Loughborough or London, are members of the Loughborough University Doctoral College.

The Doctoral College provides an extensive doctoral training programme, alongside a suite of activities designed to support research students at every stage of the doctoral process.  It links with other specialist support services across the University, such as the Careers Network, to give doctoral researchers access to help and advice, and work with colleagues across academic schools to attract external funding to support doctoral study. It also helps foster intellectual and social links between postgraduate research students from different disciplines and cultures, to be a voice for their concerns, and continually improve the doctoral researcher experience at Loughborough University.
