Contact your Graduate School
Your Graduate School is your main point of contact for any questions about your programme, or anything relating to your studies.
This page is information for current PGRs. If you are applying for a research postgraduate degree, please visit the Applying for research degrees page for admissions information and contact details.
Each faculty has a Graduate School, which is led by an academic Head of Graduate School. The Graduate Schools are under the umbrella of the Doctoral College and work to strengthen research degree arrangements and provide a consistent experience for all postgraduate researchers.
Graduate School staff can support you in all aspects of your research degree such as registration, milestones, student support and funding. They will always be available to advise, provide information or signpost you to the right person to speak to.
To read more about the role of the Graduate School, please see the Committees and Representation page on the For Students website.

Your Director of Postgraduate Research Studies (DPGRS)
In your GRAD record you will be able to find the name of your DPGRS. Once logged in, go to “My record” and then “Postgraduate research project” and your postgraduate research programme details will come up. Your DPGRS is listed under the title “Postgraduate Research Tutor” (this is an old title for the DPGRS). You might see more than one name which indicates a DPGRS and deputy DPGRS names.
