Café PhD

Café PhD is an informal social event designed to enable anyone interested in starting a PhD to network with current doctoral researchers. 

In light of the recent and ever changing situation around COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel our upcoming on-campus events, and instead run online events which you will be able to join from any location. You will still have the opportunity to chat to staff and students about a range of topics including student life, funding and applying for postgraduate study, through these live online events.

We now provide digital-only copies of our prospectus, and we have changed our guidance on the submission of documents. You can find all updates on our FAQs page.

 If you are interested in starting a PhD then Café PhD offers you the perfect opportunity to:

  • Hear current PhD candidates talk about their research and tell you what it’s really like to be a doctoral researcher at Birmingham
  • Discuss any questions that you have about PhD study in a relaxed and social atmosphere
  • Get advice on the application process, writing your research proposal and sources of funding
  • Enjoy free refreshments

Anyone who is considering starting a PhD is warmly welcome to come along, no matter what stage you are at in the decision-making process.
