About Us

The Doctoral Researchers Society aims to bring doctoral researchers together for social events, networking, and sharing of ideas. Membership is free!

It is the objective of our society to create a communal feeling among our members. As a doctoral journey can often be a lonely path it is the aim of our society to create an environment where thoughts are shared and struggles are heard. We believe that the more we socialise the more fun and easier our doctoral journey can become as we can support, motivate and inspire one another. We have agreed to arrange regular meet-ups for all students in the society every once a week or every other week depending on the participation that our members show. We aim to organise these events taking turns across the different campuses promoting inclusivity and togetherness among students.
