Other Opportunities for Research Students


Mentoring Scheme

Our mentoring scheme runs every year and matches 2nd year and above doctoral students with academic staff from all over the college. Our academic mentors can give advice based on knowledge and experience. You can discuss subjects on your professional life including but not limited to your current role as a student, future career aspirations, work life balance, demands of personal/work life, teaching demands, and research process. 

While the mentor is not an alternative to your Supervisor they can be an alternative academic professional to consult with your career development. Applications will be sent out in late summer via email. Contact for details.

The Brilliant Club

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.

Researchers in Schools

A unique teacher training and development programme designed for PhD researchers. The RIS Programme offers a bespoke route into teaching exclusively for PhD graduates. It is specifically designed to utilise their academic expertise to the benefit of pupils, schools and universities.
