Doctoral College

As one of the UK's top research universities, we have an international reputation for world leading research. 

The University of Leicester set up the Doctoral College to champion, support and grow the research talent pipeline -- from postgraduate research students (PGRs) through to early career researchers.

We try to ensure that as a research student, supervisor, or early career researcher, you work in a high quality research training environment.

We seek to develop rigorous and intrepid researchers, who can boast world-class capabilities in the leadership, communication, and impact of research, and who are prepared for careers across the globe, seamlessly taking the skills learnt here to academic or non-academic posts.
