Knowledge Mobilisation and Impact

PhD students are part of the IDS community. They have close working relationships between their supervisors, research fellows, the research clusters and research centres working in the same area, in order to enhance the quality of doctoral education.

The PhD community creates a range of platforms to present research at various stages throughout the research degree. IDS PhD day is takes place annually and is open to IDS staff and Sussex University. Studies & Methods Café are organised by PhD Students and they run weekly during the term time. These cafe sessions are combination of seminars, research methods workshops, discussions and informal sessions, tailored specifically for PhD students with a wide range of speakers.

IDS PhD Students are given opportunity to publish special issues of IDS and to publish their work in thematic issues of IDS Bulletin. In the most recent advancement of the IDS PhD programme, students get access to Methods and Methodology week with tailored sessions for research design and research analysis.
