Join us for the launch of the UKCGE report: Structures and Strategy in Doctoral Education in the UK and Ireland 

Structures and Strategy in Doctoral Education in the UK and Ireland offers a fascinating insight not only into current practice in graduate schools or equivalent as set out in contemporary priorities, activities and targets, but also into the shared challenges graduate schools face and their ambitions for their future and the future of doctoral education across the sector.

This is a free event and will take place from 1.00 — 2.30pm on Friday 29th April. This session will discuss the the findings of a large-scale survey looking at the current structures in the provision of postgraduate research education in HEIs across the UK and Ireland. The session will be led by report authors: Dr Rebekah Smith McGloin (Nottingham Trent University) and Carolyn Wynne (Coventry University).

The value of this report lies not only in its comprehensive data collection and analysis. It also comes from the sparks that are generated from the frictions which are revealed.
