Starting the PhD journey [for 1st year PhDs only]


Join us for an all day workshop designed to introduce first year PhD students from across faculties to ‘the PhD Journey’.

Topics include, amongst others:

  • “Do’s and Don’ts of the PhD Journey”
  • “Critical moments in the Journey”
  • “Developing the PhD Proposal and finding the ‘Golden thread’ in your thesis”
  • “You, your supervisor and the MoU”
  • “Developing your Writing skills”

Experienced UCT faculty and academic staff and some who have recently experienced the journey will be on hand to present, facilitate, and provide information on the various resources available to you as a PhD student.

Please note, the workshop is free of charge, sign-up is required, and is targeted at new (i.e. 1st year) PhD students. A more detailed programme will be shared with those who have booked closer to the time.
