@PhDForum was launched on Twitter in 2012.
Since that time, more than 97,000 people have connected with this supportive, knowledgeable and dynamic higher education community. What began as a doctoral support group in preparation for my own PhD has grown into what Jack Groves at the Times Higher Education described in 2016, as “one of the world’s largest PhD-related groups”.
The evolution of the @PhDForum is organic. This website is a space to further share support, knowledge and friendship.
