The Associate Dean of Doctoral Studies, Lucy Robinson oversees a team of people whose roles are designed to provide support and guidance for you throughout your time at Sussex. The School has twelve Doctoral Convenors, who have oversight of PhD courses in the School. Conveners of the different PhD courses are on hand if you need advice about your PhD and you think it would be helpful to talk to someone outside your supervisory team. They have oversight of PhD courses, PhD Supervision and the development and well-being of our doctoral community. The Doctoral Convenors will also need to sign off most request forms throughout your PhD.
