Welcome to DocSoc!

meet    -    support    -    collaborate

DocSoc is a social and academic support network that is run by postgrad researchers, for postgrad researchers. As such, every member is welcome to contribute by suggesting and organising events that could benefit others.

We all too often forget about the people behind the ideas as we are rushing to respond to yet another call for papers, but it is well known (sic) that the sharing of experiences not only leads to peer to peer knowledge transfer, but can also inspire innovation in research approaches or form the basis of collaborative ideas and projects. 

Our aims are to:

  • Build a strong network and community of PhD students, ensuring that we make the most of our time at the university
  • Run social, peer to peer learning and academic events
  • Campaign to improve support and provision for PhD students

DocSoc meets regularly. For more info, get in touch via our Twitter or Facebook accounts, and be part of the growing UWE postgraduate research community.

We aim to send out regular emails to keep you in the loop - make sure you don't miss out and check your spam folder. If you don't seem to receive any updates from us, please let us know!

Also, note that we are not currently automatically notified of new memberships - so please get in touch with us if you have paid your membership and have not heard back from us! We will kindly welcome you :)

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
