@PhDForum was launched on Twitter in 2012.

Since that time, more than 110,000 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”.

Many of you share your success via our Twitterfeed and in our online study room. Your success inspires others who have yet to reach those milestones, so we've created a Kudoboard to keep all these together and accessible. Feel free to add your own. 

The evolution of the @PhDForum is organic and this website is a space to further share support, knowledge and friendship.
