Demystifying the PhD (for prospective PhD students)


PhD Graduates

Thinking about doing a PhD? Unsure of what it involves or whether it is right for you?

The Graduate School is running an event this term (‘A PhD: What me?’) which is designed for those with an interest in going on to do doctoral (PhD) research, most of whom will currently be taking a Masters or Undergraduate degree.

This event –  which is running on two dates (one for the Sciences and one for the Humanities, Social Sciences and Business) aims to address the big questions about PhD study including how a PhD works, how to find a supervisor, how to apply, funding opportunities and much more.

These sessions will involve academic staff and a current PhD student from a relevant Faculty.  The dates for the different Faculties are as follows (click on the title to download a flier):
