Nature Looks at Ph.D. Programs' Effects on Student Well-Being

The journal Nature joined with Shift Learning, a U.K. education market research company, to conduct the fifth biennial survey of global Ph.D. students. “The survey, which was completed by the highest number of respondents since its inception [more than 6,300], included for the first time questions on mental health, bullying, harassment and student debt. Respondents were self-selecting, based all over the world and represented the full spectrum of scientific fields. In addition to English, the survey was also available in Chinese, French, Portuguese and Spanish.”

The survey finds that 75% of respondents are “satisfied with their decision” to get a Ph.D., and 71% are “generally satisfied” with the experience so far. But 21% have experienced bullying by supervisors, other students, or staffers, and 21% have experienced discrimination or harassment. And 36% have “sought help for anxiety or depression caused by their studies.”

For more information, read the press release.
