Communications information


Our primary mode of direct communication with you will be through email. Any emails will be sent to your Imperial email address, rather than a personal email account. Secondly, important news, events, opportunities and publications will be disseminated via the weekly SSCP DTP newsletter. Christiane can be emailed if you would like to share anything with your fellow students via the newsletter.

It is extremely important that you access your emails on a regular basis as this will be our main line of communication during your PhD.

Google Drive

The SSCP DTP Google Drive is where you will be able to view SSCP DTP related information, useful forms and templates.  


You will receive a weekly SSCP DTP Newsletter each Thursday with details of events, additional training workshops, internships and funding opportunities. If you have anything to contribute, please email the SSCP Doctoral Training Coordinator; items submitted before Wednesday at 12pm can be included, space permitting. 


All SSCP DTP activity will be noted on the SSCP DTP calendar, and an Outlook invitation will be sent to your Imperial email account.  

Social Media

News and information will also be available through our Twitter feed, Facebook page and LinkedIn account.

Branding and acknowledgement

As a member of the DTP cohort, you are expected to follow the Institute’s official branding guidelines. Templates are supplied on the Google Drive and should be used for all presentations, posters and written material relating to your PhD project. This includes any departmental presentations and posters you are expected to produce during your PhD. We would love to see the materials you produce, which should be sent to the SSCP DTP Doctoral Training Coordinator to ensure we have a record of your activities. This will also help us with reporting to NERC on our programme and individual student activities.

Please note that all publications should acknowledge the DTP in your address as follows:
