An expert panel will give short talks and explain what they look for in a prospective student. Members of the panel have previously sat on interview panels for the University of Edinburgh. They will give you an insight into what to expect once you start an application, what they look out for in a CV, and what they look for at interview.

Panel members will be available to answer your questions and give advice on the PhD application process. There will also be some past PhD students and post-docs on the panel to discuss their experiences of applying and interviewing for a PhD at the University of Edinburgh.

Current PhD students are invited to attend and share their experiences too, and to get some CV and interview advice on the next stage in their career. Food and drink will be provided. If you are interested in attending this event, you can RSVP to the Facebook event page below or e-mail
