Thinking positively about a PhD
This seminar will address the highs and lows of studying for a PhD as well as experiences and lessons learned.
Studying for a PhD can undoubtedly be difficult, and many candidates feel isolated, overwhelmed or experience mental health difficulties at some point during their studies. But doing a PhD can also be tremendously rewarding, exciting and career-making.
In this presentation, three members of staff from the Department of Social & Policy Sciences will talk about their own experiences of studying for a doctorate, some of the positive aspects and outcomes of doing a PhD, and how even difficulties with a supervisor can be turned into a positive, rewarding experience.
The session will include plenty of time for questions and discussion.
