IOE - Faculty of Education and Society


The PhD in the 21st century | RFTRW: S15E01

9 May 2022

Did you know that the IOE is older than the UK PhD? As higher education moves with the times, we hear about work at UCL that aims to improve access for ethnic minorities, demystify the postgraduate study experience and support students long after their viva.

Dr Richard Freeman, Research for the Real World podcast

Dr Richard Freeman
Head of the Centre for Doctoral Education

Dr Freeman joins the podcast to talk about the work of the Centre for Doctoral Education, including the In2Research project which aims to address inequalities across the postgraduate research student lifecycle and the barriers facing Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, and a MOOC designed to shed light on what it’s really like to be a doctoral student.

Institutions have also been considering how they can best provide support to students after PhD completion. Dr Freeman describes what work has been done at IOE and the impact he hopes this will make.
