New Network for PhD students
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new network for PhD students at Black British Academics.
A mailing list has been launched to facilitate communication between doctoral researchers who are subscribers of Black British Academics, promoting mutual support and a space for inter-group dissemination of information related to doctoral research.
In addition to the list, that enables subscribers to seek answers to common issues such as supervision, the various stages of a PhD and developing a research profile; workshops will also be on offer throughout the year, facilitated by experienced lecturers and researchers within the academic community.
The workshops will be free to Gold and Premium network members of Black British Academics but a fee will be charged to non-members.
Deborah Gabriel, founder and CEO of Black British Academics who recently passed her viva at the University of Salford said:
“Speaking from personal experience I am acutely aware of some of the unique problems that black and minority ethnic PhD students face.
I found the support, encouragement and mentoring of both fellow doctoral researchers and senior academics extremely useful in helping me complete my journey.
I am sure that PhD students still working towards their Phds will find the new network to be a valuable resource.”
