Student Reps


The SWDTP currently has several student representatives that  are recruited through an open call for volunteers.

They represent the SWDTP students’ interests to SWDTP management and the Academic Advisory Board (AAB); attending AAB meetings; ensuring good communication between all parties involved in the Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP); managing SWDTP social events; providing input for DTP strategies, handbook and incoming funding applications; reviewing and evaluating Impact Fund applications.

Our generic student reps email address unfortunately cannot be accessed anymore so, if you have any questions for the Reps or have any issues that you wish for them to raise at the AAB, please contact a rep from your institution directly via the emails on their profiles.


The reps attend meetings 4-5 times a year at venues rotated through the institutions. The latest meeting was on the 10th December at the University of Bristol. To read about what was discussed please read the meetings minutes here.

Student reps are an important part of the SWDTP to inform the way we work and to lead various cohort building activities. If you are interested in becoming a student rep, please contact the student reps at

The Bath student reps team would like to welcome everyone (SWDTP-funded or not) to their weekly lunches!

The SWDTP-Bath weekly lunches are an opportunity for SWDTP-funded student at the University of Bath to build community and socialize, as well as ask questions or raise concerns to the SWDTP Bath Reps (Maike, Mike, Victoria, Callum) and, once a month, to Ana Bullock.

The lunches take place on Tuesdays, from 12-13:30 at the Lime Tree Restaurant. During this time, students can drop in and out as they see fit.

For Bristol and Exeter students similar lunches are potentially in the works!
