PhD Study and the Suffolk Doctoral College
Interested in joining our thriving Postgraduate Research student community here at the University of Suffolk? Please read on to find out more about us and what we can offer you.
Working closely with academics, and supported by our commended Suffolk Doctoral College, you will have an excellent experience here in Ipswich as a Postgraduate Research student and make a valued contribution to our emergent research community. We work in partnership with the University of Brighton to provide PhD courses in a range of research areas.
Through studying with us, you will have access to a comprehensive Researcher Development Programme, accessible to all University of Suffolk PhD students and early career researchers. Training will primarily be available online and will provide you with an excellent series of workshops to cover wide-ranging topics relevant to you and your PhD.
The Suffolk Doctoral College also organises a number of social and training events throughout the year, where interaction between researchers of different academic disciplines is encouraged, to foster a vibrant and supportive research community.
Your PhD experience will benefit from our location on the Ipswich Waterfront and our continuous investment in our facilities. This includes a recently refurbished dedicated working space on the first floor of the Library Building, available exclusively to our PGR students and their supervisors as a social and working space.
