ONLINE: Starting the PhD journey [for 1st year PhDs only] Part Two


We are offering a series of two online webinars (including workshop elements) designed to introduce first year PhD students from across faculties to ‘the PhD Journey’. The sessions will cover topics appropriate for new PhD students highlighting critical moments in the journey, considering the ‘Proposal’, interacting with supervisors, developing academic writing skills, amongst others.

Experienced UCT staff and consultants will be on hand to present, facilitate, and provide information on the various resources available to you as a PhD student.

Please note, the webinars are 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.

Participants may register for one or both webinars – the content in each differs from the other, and the intention is for participants to attend both but we understand if that is not possible in all cases. The topics to be covered in each session will be posted soon, here.
