Doctoral School Open meetings


What is the Doctoral School Open Meeting?

The Doctoral School hosts a termly online Doctoral School Open Meeting chaired by Professor Ken Badcock, the Dean of the Doctoral School, to give you the opportunity to find out more about what is going on in the Doctoral School, to provide feedback on the development of the PGR provision at Royal Holloway and to discuss areas that impact you as a postgraduate researcher at Royal Holloway.  The School Directors of PGR Education, Alex Borrett (Doctoral School Manager) and Laura Christie (Doctoral School Training and Development Manager) will all be in attendance to aid the discussions.

What impact can attending the meeting have?

As a result of points raised at the last Open Meeting in February for example, the Doctoral School launched the Doctoral School Research Awards - so your input has real impact.
