Doctoral College

Welcome from Professor Chris Howls, Director of the Doctoral College

The University of Southampton is a world-leading research university engaged in cutting-edge research and innovation across a wide range of disciplines. Our doctoral researchers are essential to the ongoing vitality of the University’s research culture, and developing the next generation of research leaders is central to our mission.

The Doctoral College is a focal point for the training and development of doctoral researchers. We work in partnership with Faculty Graduate Schools and Professional Services to co-ordinate and enhance doctoral training across the University. In particular, we aim to provide you with an attractive Professional Development Programme to enable you to maximise your potential as a researcher and enhance your future prospects.

We are also committed to developing a strong doctoral researcher community across the University. We aim to help generate links between disciplines, foster interdisciplinary research and support and enhance the wellbeing of all postgraduate researchers.

You can keep up to date with the Doctoral College through our Facebook and Twitter accounts. We will also send you regular digests of information, events and activities via email.

All new doctoral researchers are warmly invited to attend a Welcome Reception in the Autumn (or early in 2022 for later starters). You will be notified about the event via email, so do keep a look out for it.
