Cardiff University Doctoral Academy

The Doctoral Academy, launched on 1 September 2016, is a dynamic academic unit to grow, coordinate and support postgraduate research provision at the University..

The Academy builds on the success of the University Graduate College (UGC) as a centre of excellence for training and skill development of postgraduate research students at Cardiff. It continues to promote and support the delivery of an outstanding student experience, including a comprehensive training programme for postgraduate researchers.

The Academy also supports the University’s ambition to attract more postgraduate researchers to Cardiff. It works closely with Schools, Colleges and key Professional Services teams to develop a coordinated approach to increase postgraduate research student numbers, in line with the ambitions set out in The Way Forward.

Research students are involved in the organisation by their membership in the ‘Postgraduate Research Network’, which brings together School Directors of PGR Studies, School PGR Student Representatives, College PGR Deans and the Academy’s Director and staff to discuss issues and provide input into the Academy’s activities.
