Our Research Community

As a postgraduate research student you will join our small yet friendly and cohesive research student community.

The Graduate School

We provide a supportive academic environment for all our research students and encourage cross-disciplinary discussion.

A study room on our Canterbury Campus is available exclusively for research students, complete with full IT facilities and 24-hour secure access. 

Specialist supervision within academic Schools, Faculties and research centres is complemented by a cross-disciplinary Research Development Programme provided by us.

If you would like to discuss your interests and options in more detail, please get in touch.

Post Graduate Research Association (PGRA)

The PGRA is an active and enthusiastic society run by the students themselves.

They meet regularly and are involved in liaising with various student service departments within the University on behalf of research students.

The PGRA arranges a series of seminars in which research students are invited to present to peers within a ‘safe’ environment. It is also responsible for the annual Research Student Conference in May. All are interdisciplinary events which encourage learning and exchange of views across subject areas. All research students are also eligible to join the clubs and societies of the Students’ Union.
