PhD Academy mission statement

The PhD Academy aspires to be one of the best graduate schools for doctoral students.

At LSE we place doctoral candidates at the heart of our research culture and community and our doctoral programmes are designed to nurture the next generation of influential scholars, policy makers and leaders.  

Our goal is to support students in their quest to become creative intellectuals who can produce rigorous evidence-based research of the highest quality.

We also support our students in creating impact outside of academia and in communicating their ideas to a range of different audiences.

The training we offer in advanced methodology, subject specific knowledge and professional development aims to ensure that our graduates are equipped with a range of advanced skills that allow them to meet, and exceed, their personal ambitions.
