The Royal Holloway Doctoral School was established in September 2014.  Our more than 1000 research students are integral to our mission and intellectual culture. 

The Doctoral School brings together key aspects of research student life, aiming to ensure that research students are fully integrated as members of the College's

research community and to provide opportunities to meet and share ideas and experiences across our three Faculties.  We will support our research students

throughout their progress, ensuring availability of relevant contemporary research skills and employment training alongside the highest standards of administrative and

pastoral support.

We hope your time as a Royal Holloway research student is inspiring and productive.  Please feel free to contact us with any comments, suggestions or queries

concerning any aspect of your student experience.
