About this workshop

We are offering a series of three webinars aimed at those who are nearing the end of their PhD journey.  The workshops will cover the final phase of the thesis writing process, the administrative processes of submitting the thesis, the examination process, and life after the PhD journey.

The topics covered in this workshop are:

  • Postdoctoral fellowships – experiences and how to look for opportunities
  • Career planning – advice and help offered by Careers Service at UCT

 

What previous attendees have said about this workshop:

  • “There is support available on careers from UCT, and the details about postdocs."
  • “I learnt about positioning myself for the job market."
