 Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme


PRDP Workshops

Our Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme (PRDP) is a lively and challenging programme of workshops, events, seminars and masterclasses designed to support you through your doctoral journey. It is for you, with advice from your supervisors and the Doctoral College, to devise a training and support package that suits your needs.

PhD Student Hub


Every month or so we hold PhD Student Hub, a student-led initiative which invites students to get together over lunch to chat about research and research life. You can find out more on our blog and sign up (optional) on PhD Manager. Students at any stage of doctoral study are welcome to come along.

If you have any questions, please contact Lorraine Slater -


 Doctoral College blog

​Visit the Doctoral College blog, a space for and about our research student community, to find out about news and events from the Doctoral College, and highlights of our students' activities and achievements.

If you'd like to submit a post for our blog, we'd love to hear from you. We're particularly interested in publishing research students' perspectives on doctoral study at Brighton. Topics could include, for example, starting out as a PhD student, life as an international student, presenting at conference, mental health and wellbeing, time management tips, writing advice, surviving the viva, what you wish you’d known when you started, and so on.
Got something to say? Contact Lorraine Slater with a brief outline of your idea.
