ONLINE: PhD Breakaway [for mid-stream PhD students] Part One

 

About this workshop

This is Part 1 of a 3-part online workshop series, designed to stimulate the development of a vibrant intellectual community of mid-stream PhD students across disciplinary and institutional lines at UCT and to provide information pertinent to PhD students in their second or third year of study.

 

The topics to be covered in this workshop are:

  • The PhD journey - reflections on the journey thus far
  • Communicating your thesis (Parts 1 and 2)

 

We look forward to meeting many of you at the workshop and learning of your experiences as a postgraduate student at UCT. This will be very helpful in future planning as we continue to examine ways in which the University can enhance the quality of the doctoral experience and extent of the support for PhDs on our Campus.

 

What previous attendees have said about this workshop:

  • “These meetings put communities of practice together, it’s very helpful.”
  • “I appreciated the compassion the speakers came into this meeting with.”
  • “I am writing a PhD thesis and will use the knowledge I have gained from this workshop to help in completing my thesis.”
