Support

Supervisory support

Your thesis is your work, but you won’t be on your own. Your supervisor will be a member of our academic staff whose research interests correlate with your own.

Your support network

Research community

Our research community is the bedrock on which our research stands. Academics, students and the administrative and technical staff who support them all work together for mutual benefit.

The community and support that our Doctoral College provides makes the University of Leicester a great choice for your PhD.

Researcher training

We don’t expect you to just turn up and start your research. A research degree is as much about learning as research: developing new skills and exploring new ideas which will benefit you not only as you work on your thesis, but in the long-term.
