PhD Careers programme: events and further resources
Plan ahead to make the most of your PhD. Find out about our PhD Careers programme to help you realise your ambitions.
We recognise that, as a PhD student, your experience and career aspirations will be different from that of our undergraduate students, and we tailor our support accordingly. Whether you are looking for a career within academia or interested in what might be on offer beyond academia, we have the resources, people, and support to help you manage and develop your career.
PhD Careers programme
Our PhD Careers programme covers all the career essentials, including making effective use of the Careers Service and employability support, marketing your PhD qualification, understanding how to discuss the skills and attributes you have developed, career planning & decision making, and understanding and navigating the job market, both within academia and beyond.
Our 2023-2024 PhD Careers Semester One sessions run throughout October and November 2023.
Please check details and times, and book your place, by searching for PhD Careers 2023-24 under ‘Events’ on MyCareerHub.
