Meet the Editorial Team was founded in 2005 as a database of PhD project and other research programmes, aiming to connect students across the world with their ideal course. We’ve since grown into one of the largest websites of our kind, with millions of visitors every year. Our advice guides are produced by a dedicated team of writers with personal experience of Masters and PhD study along with many years covering postgraduate education.

We pride ourselves on using official government data sources wherever possible and in regularly checking our pages to make sure they’re completely accurate and up-to-date. We stay on top of the latest developments in the postgraduate sector, keeping a community of thousands of newsletter subscribers informed about scholarships, visa opportunities and much more.
