Postgraduate Research Study

Our Postgraduate Research Community

The University of Lincoln recognises that its postgraduate research students (PGRs) are critical to providing a dynamic and healthy research environment.

The institution has been successful in attracting a diverse range of external funding opportunities for PGRs from Research Council UK Block Grant Awards and Collaborative Doctoral Awards, through to European Commission and industrially sponsored programmes in partnership with leading businesses.

The University of Lincoln’s Doctoral School provides a highly collegiate setting where our postgraduates can enjoy support for their research studies, as well as acclimatise and integrate into academic life. In addition to practical support, our Graduate School helps students access competitive funds made available by the University for research studentships and projects.

The School holds an annual postgraduate conference where academics and research students showcase their work and debate key challenges of current interest to academic, business and wider communities.
