PhD Academy


Welcome to LSE’s new PhD Academy, a dedicated space and services hub for doctoral candidates. At LSE we place doctoral candidates at the heart of our research culture and community. Our doctoral programmes are designed to nurture the next generation of influential scholars, policy makers and leaders.

We look forward to meeting you soon in our rooms on the 4th floor of the Lionel Robbins Building, which opened on 28 September 2015. In the meantime, please see below to meet the team, check our mythbusters, and browse events.
