The experience of disabled doctoral students: survey

Survey participation request: The experience of disabled doctoral students

The experience of disabled doctoral students (including neurodiverse students and students with chronic illness) is under-researched.

Disabled Students UK is co-producing a research project with Pete Quinn Consulting, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Oxford, focusing on the lived experience of PhD students in STEM (focusing on the Life Sciences) across the UK. We wish to understand good practice and challenges so as to improve the environment for this group.

You can participate here. This confidential survey is an opportunity for current doctoral students to share their lived experience of studying at doctoral level. We value your perspective and aim to use your data to identify key areas and trends for deeper analysis.

If there is anything that is not clear or if you would like more information please contact (PI) or (DSUK).
