Case study

PhD Manager enables us to monitor progress more effectively, whilst at the same time reducing the time spent on administration.

The University of Westminster's busy Graduate School supports several hundred Doctoral Researchers across five faculties in central London. With a growing Doctoral Research programme, the University was keen to improve the Doctoral Researcher experience and likelihood of timely successful completion, at the same time as reducing the programme's administrative overhead.

With a directory of all Doctoral Research projects, records are now easily accessible by all those involved with the project, saving time and reducing the risk of records in different systems becoming out of sync.

'What's most important to me is ensuring each Doctoral Researcher is receiving effective support and has the best chance of a timely and successful completion,' explained Professor Simon Joss, Director of the Graduate School. 'PhD Manager enables us to monitor progress more effectively, whilst at the same time reducing the time spent on administration.'
