ADM PhD Mentoring facilitates interdisciplinary mentoring partnerships between Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) at different stages of their research and between PGRs and Early Career Researchers (ECRs) with mutual concerns across Arts, Design & Media.

It aims to:

  • Provide valuable informal support for PhD students at various stages of their study complementary to the role of the supervisory team;
  • Facilitate knowledge exchange resulting in new ideas, approaches and ways of working with the potential for research-related outputs such as conference and symposia contributions, publications, workshops, exhibitions and projects;
  • Increase PGRs and ECRs’ personal and professional development for example, through self-reflection and gaining transferrable skills;
  • Enhance a holistic PGR and ECR experience in which wellbeing and socialisation are embedded with research training.

Partnerships are required to meet at least once a month. Each partnership will receive £20 of vouchers to be spent at Six Eight Kafé, Birmingham during meetings. Beyond this, we encourage partnerships to develop organically, flexibly and creatively in response to issues discussed and to meet where and when best suits them.


The current call for mentoring applications will close on the 13th March 2017.
