Welcome to the Doctoral School
What is the Doctoral School?
The main purpose of the Doctoral School is to enhance your experience as a postgraduate research (PGR) candidate at Bangor, and to ensure that you fulfil your full potential. As part of this mission, we also provide support and training for supervisory staff. We are responsible for implementing, monitoring and contributing to the review of the University regulatory, policy and operational framework, and provide relevant information such as training and funding opportunities as well as the university’s regulations and codes of practice for research students. We also aim to develop and support an interdisciplinary and integrated research community with research candidates at its heart, while promoting equality of opportunities, and a healthy work-life balance. We wish to reward good practice and effort where it exists, and work towards providing the best student experience possible.
Professor John Turner - Dean of Postgraduate Research, Professor in Marine Biology
John Turner has led an internationally recognised MSc course in Marine Environmental Protection for 22 years, he held a Visiting Lectureship at the University of Mauritius, and was involved in the establishment of postgraduate training in East Africa and Mexico. He is a regular external examiner at postgraduate taught and research levels. He was awarded a university Teaching Fellowship in 2007 and has been the Director of Graduate Studies in Ocean Sciences since 2011, supervising both home and international students often involved in projects overseas.
‘The requirements of the doctoral student and doctoral degree are changing and we are recognising this by building a distinct organisation unifying and promoting high quality graduate education and administration across the University to create an inspiring research environment to support the development of independent researchers. We will provide activities, events, courses, and workshops, to develop personal and professional skills to complement academic and technical training at the discipline level, and show case the diversity of doctoral research to partners and the public. Our doctoral students are, after all, the future leaders of world class research and we must give them a first class experience.’
