Code of Practice for PhD Students

It is essential that students review the Code of Practice at the start of their study so a signature page has been introduced to the booklet to help encourage this. We will not be checking on students or their supervisor that this has been completed, but please note that if you do not sign the booklet this does not mean that you will not be held against it.

Graduate Student Resources

For information regarding Leave to Work Away, Fieldwork Funding, Ethics, Risk Assessments and other matters relating to your student status and course, please consult the Graduate Student Resources webpage. 

 My experience in POLIS has been greatly enriched by the people. I enjoy the support of brilliant and constructive peers, as well as amazing staff who have been integral in helping me successfully navigate my Cambridge experience.
