PGR community and Research Culture

As a student in the Doctoral Academy, you are part of a vibrant and active research community here in both the Faculty and the wider University.

We define Research Culture as encompassing the environment in which all research is designed, conducted and communicated, and set as core goals:

  • To promote a healthy research and learning environment that is founded on clear expectations, values and behaviours between PGRs and their academic networks;
  • To provide training, opportunity and support, which maximise inclusion, equality, and development of PGRs across our institution; 
  • To place strong emphasis on the wellbeing of PGRs and broader academic activities including social and societal impact and career development;
  • To embed our PGRs in a community that values respect, collegiality and collaboration and which empowers PGRs to excel and succeed.
