Doctoral graduates are highly employable both inside and outside academia. Many of our students go on to secure positions either with us or at other top-rated universities or companies.
If you are interested in a career in academia, you will be encouraged and provided with support to publish your work, either as working papers, journal articles or conference papers. Financial assistance is available to attend conferences where you can present your own work and network with academics and practitioners working in your field.
Royal Holloway's Careers & Employability Service, part of The Careers Group, University of London, provides tailored help and advice to enable PhD students’ to achieve their career development goals:
- Whether or not you know where you want your career to go, you can get one-to-one guidance and advice from a friendly adviser at any stage throughout your studies.
- They can provide feedback on your CV, covering letters and applications.
- If you have an interview coming up they can help you practise and prepare with a mock interview session.
- We hold hundreds of careers-related events every year.
