Bristol’s outstanding research profile is underpinned by the contribution of our postgraduate researchers. The Bristol Doctoral College (BDC) provides a focal point for doctoral training activity and researcher development across the University and in collaboration with our partner institutions.
Our key aims are to:
- Provide a hub of information and guidance for all postgraduate students working towards a doctoral degree, for staff in academic schools and faculties, and for professional service divisions
- Coordinate a central skills training and researcher development programme to support postgraduates in maximising their potential and succeeding in their chosen careers
- Drive the development of the University’s PGR processes and data management systems
