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.”

  1. Dear Fellow PhD Colleague, First of all, thank you very much for giving us this opportunity to share our difficulties in this journey. I have started my PhD a few years ago but unable to progress due to family and financial problems. While I am dealing with the family problem with the relevant authorities, I would be grateful if you could direct me to any funding opportunities available for an Afro-Canadian national living in the UK. Many thanks for your time and kindness in reading and replying to my request. Fasil

  2. Well timed as I am due to start at the University of Southampton this September. Excited but apprehensive.
