Summer Doctoral Programme

The annual Summer Doctoral Programme (SDP) brings together outstanding doctoral students from around the world for a fortnight of study at the world-leading University of Oxford.

The programme is structured around daily lectures, seminars and tutorials with leading academics in the field of Internet Studies, and provides an academic framework in which to share and discuss students’ current research.

Since 2003, hundreds of doctoral students have been brought together for two weeks of intensive teaching and learning. The international networks established endure over the years and deliver concrete examples of collaboration.

SDP 2019 will be held 1-12 July 2019. Applications are now closed

If you are interested in attending future Summer Doctoral programmes (2020 onwards) please sign up to be alerted when applications open and when deadlines approach.
