PhD Survival Skills Group
An opportunity for postgraduate research (PGR) students, who are already registered with the Disability and Learning Support Service (DLSS), to meet together regularly in a supportive environment to discuss the issues that are important to them.
The group is a safe, social space for PGR students to share their experiences, thoughts and advice on PhD life with the people who best understand what it's like - other PhD students.
The group is not a drop-in group! It runs continuously, for group members to build up a social, friendship network and is supported by two members of our Specialist Mentor Team.
Groups usually touch on a specific topic each week, as a conversation starter; so far students have talked about PhD Life Hacks; their experiences of supervisors; Imposter Syndrome in PhD; preparing for annual reviews…the list goes on according to what students want to chat about!
The group runs every two weeks, at 3.30pm on Wednesdays, online on Zoom.
