Welcome to the Postgraduate Research Service

How Can We Help You? 

 

We help the staff and students in the University's Graduate Schools with those aspects of postgraduate research policy and administration which have a relevance to more than one College or School or which require liaison with outside agencies such as the Research Councils. This includes:

  • Clerking for the Deans of Graduate Studies Committee (DOGS)
  • Supporting PGR issues through activity in a range of internal and external Committees
  • Supporting the implementation of good practice in postgraduate research administration and policy
  • Co-ordinating the selection, allocation and administration of centrally-held scholarship funding
  • Co-ordinating the allocation and distribution of Doctoral Training Funding from Research Councils
  • Advice and guidance on funder regulations and terms and conditions
  • Advice and guidance on internal or external policy matters related to PGRs and doctoral education
  • Advice and guidance on administrative processes relating to studentships and scholarships (e.g. use of the RCUK Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system)
