PhD Network

Supporting PhD students and enhancing career prospects through active engagement in academic debates

Being a part of one of the largest academic associations in the United Kingdom BUIRA PhD Network aims to provide support and encourage collaboration among doctoral students in the fields of employment relations, human resource management, and labour market studies.

The network has grown rapidly in the last five years; it currently involves over 100 PhD students from more than 40 institutions including leading UK and overseas universities.

BUIRA hosts the annual PhD Symposium which opens up a room for further engagement of doctoral students in relevant academic debates and provides the unique opportunity to deliver academic presentations in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere.
