Abstract

Completing a doctorate can be a solitary and sometimes stressful experience, which is further exacerbated by the underlying nature and structure of this particular degree. The issue of social support during the doctoral journey is important to address given its relationship with well-being. Additionally, social isolation has been identified as a major contributing factor of compromised psychological and physical health. Indeed, adequate social support becomes a critical component if one is to successfully navigate the PhD terrain. This chapter will highlight the protective benefits associated with social support, as well as examine the empirical findings on the negative effects of social isolation during the doctoral journey. Additionally, this chapter will provide two contrasting student experiences of social isolation, specifically relating to on-campus versus off-campus modes of study. Finally, the provision of practical strategies to facilitate increased social support will be provided.
