Geography and Environmental Sciences

Welcome from Dr Andrew Power

It is with great pleasure that we welcome all new postgraduates to the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences at the University of Southampton. We hope that you will have a memorable and enjoyable time here. We also welcome back all our existing students at the beginning of the new academic year; we hope that you enjoy developing the next phase of your research!

Embarking on a postgraduate degree is exciting and challenging. However it can also be a daunting experience for many reasons: the time commitment, the intellectual challenge; new surroundings, and the uncertainty – which often stems from not having done a PhD before. We hope that your Induction and the Handbook can help alleviate some of these concerns and ensure that you are well-placed to take on the challenge of a PhD whilst looking after your wellbeing.

During your PhD formal support will come from the Graduate School as well as your supervisor and other members of your supervisory team. For many post-graduate students support is also provided by other postgraduate students at various stages of their studies so it’s important to spend time building these connections. Being part of a large and thriving Graduate School and knowing that others around you are sharing your experience (the highs and the lows) is important.

Dr Andrew Power, Doctoral Programme Director, Geography and Environmental Sciences
