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.
Bangor University is closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus (Covid-19) and continues to follow the advice of the UK authorities.
The Doctoral School remains open in this unprecedented situation. Our staff will be delivering services via Homeworking.
Please contact our staff by their Bangor University e-mails (Contact Us)as office telephones will be largely unanswered.
