The WRDTP Student Forum

Are you interested in becoming a member?

Student representation is a key part of the governance of the White Rose DTP.  We are setting up a new Student Forum to inform the operations and development of the DTP.  It will be chaired by the WRDTP Director and feed into the governance structure via the Training Group and the Academic Quality Committee.

We are keen to hear from you if you are interested in joining the Student Forum.  This is your opportunity to shape the future of the DTP and represent the doctoral researchers at your university and/or pathway.

How to Apply

We are now accepting expressions of interest from MA Social Research Students and PhD Students who would like to become members of the Student Forum. Please complete the Google form below. We will contact successful students after the Welcome Event on 10th & 11th November.
