University of Glasgow study looking into the wellbeing of postgraduate researchers (PGRs) and the role of relationships and social support.
Relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives.
During your PhD, other people can be an invaluable source of comfort, support, help and advice. Community and belonging are at the heart of a positive PhD experience. People around you can be an invaluable source of comfort, support, help and advice and we would like to learn more about these key relationships and their role in your wellbeing. This knowledge is very important, as it can help universities understand the current needs of PhD researchers better and improve the support and service provision for this community.
The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and there are prizes to be won! You will be asked to tell us more about yourself, your studies, your recent mood, the support you are getting for your research and your wellbeing, and the key people you interact with.
This knowledge will help understand the needs of PGRs and what can universities do to help enhance the support system and the wellbeing of this community.
