A Research Community
There are nearly 200 graduate students at St Hilda’s College. They have the opportunity to engage in and with the highest quality research here.
St Hilda's graduate students are encouraged to develop and sustain disciplinary strengths, while also responding creatively to complex areas of enquiry. The students hold a termly Middle Common Room Research Forum, at which speakers give an overview of their respective research areas and outline their findings to date, before taking questions from the audience. These fora provide postgraduate students with invaluable experience of presenting lay-style talks to large audiences as well as encouraging cross-disciplinary thinking. The Fellows support postgraduates to engage with specific research cultures and wider networks, while the cross-disciplinary links in the College encourage development of creative collaborations across disciplinary boundaries.
