Our videos for universities are made to support and develop the skills of doctoral students and their supervisors, with partner institutions including Birkbeck, University College London and Royal Holloway. The academic consultant is Prof John Wakeford of The Missenden Centre.

Dr.App is the ideal way to put the entire series and more into the pockets of your doctoral students and their supervisors (and anyone considering doctoral study). 

Dr.App includes all of the videos listed below (some of which were previously sold as separate, stand-alone videos and can still be licenced as such). We also offer occasional live sessions on Zoom to universities with Dr.App licences, to screen some of the videos and discuss the issues raised. A PGR recently commented, “Thank you – this is one of the most helpful and illuminating sessions I have attended while researching my PhD. You have given me a lot of confidence. I get a lot of support from my supervisors, but they can’t do or be everything.”

Dr.App started as a mobile app for Apple and Android but is now running more reliably as a mobile-friendly website with a login for licenced users.

Individual users can buy their own access, but institutional licences are far better value. Universities can buy access for an affordable licence fee each academic year, the price depending on the number of research students and staff you need user accounts for.  (And you pay less if your university has previously licenced any of the videos above as stand-alone titles.)
