GCDC Buddy Scheme

The GCDC is committed to supporting and connecting researchers working across disciplines in global challenges areas, especially new and continuing GCDC PhD students.

Settling into life as a PhD student can feel daunting at the start, and sometimes it can be helpful to have an informal contact who can offer tips and advice. The GCDC Buddy Scheme is intended to facilitate peer-to-peer support amongst our GCDC PhD cohorts.

Are you an incoming GCDC PhD student? Sign up to the GCDC Buddy Scheme and be matched with a GCDC Buddy (a continuing GCDC student) who can offer personal support and advice during the first year of your PhD.
