Dedicated writing-up space for final year doctoral students

Are you currently writing-up your doctoral thesis full-time and in need of a dedicated desk space?

If so, you may be eligible to apply for a desk in the new ‘Doctoral Thesis Writing-Up’ room within the Maughan Library.

Successful students will be offered their own desk and locker within a designated quiet room for a period of 3 months.

To be eligible, you must be a registered doctoral student at King’s College London who either:

  • Has registered for writing-up status
  • Or, has submitted an RD1 examination entry form to the research degrees examinations office which has been approved (you must provide proof of approval)
  • Or, is currently undergoing corrections for thesis resubmission following examination (you must provide an examination report as proof)

The expectation is that you will be continuously writing-up your doctoral thesis and will use the space at least 3-4 days a week.

To apply you will need to complete an online application form and request a supporting statement from your supervisor. Four competitions will run during the year and the deadline for the next round is 15th April 2017. For full details, please visit: https://internal.kcl.ac.uk/student/grad-school/pgr/support/wupspace.aspx.

This scheme will run as a pilot during the year 2017 and is subject to review over the summer. If successful, there may be an opportunity to roll this out wider across the campuses. Space is limited and allocation will be offered on a needs basis.
