The Research Impact Video -
changing the world with your PhD

A PhD contributes to a body of academic knowledge, but should it aim to have an impact outside academia too?  For many doctoral students, generating real-world impact is an integral part of their research.  What are the benefits? And is it appropriate for every doctoral project in every discipline? This video in our series for doctoral students was made with assistance from Royal Holloway, University of London. 

The complete video is available in our  NEW  mobile app, Dr.App, or as a separate half hour video.  Ask us about a preview or purchasing a licence.

Through case studies and expert interviews, The Research Impact Video explores:

  • Why many PhD students want to achieve impact
  • How they integrate it into their PhD
  • How some doctorates present easier pathways to this than others
The video will help students make informed choices about building impact into their own doctoral projects.

The Research Impact Video was produced with advice from Professor John Wakeford, Director of the Missenden Centre for the Development of Higher Education.
