Starting a PhD is both an exciting and a daunting prospect for most. Progressing to a research degree from a taught degree is challenging, but it also offers great opportunities for creativity and individuality. In this networking and mentoring event, we want to give new PhD students a chance to gain a clearer understanding of the PhD process by drawing on the experience of those in years above. Come along and find out what those who have gone before you have to say about attending conferences, publishing papers, collecting data and actually finishing your research! This is an excellent opportunity to network with others both within and outside your field. Although this event is aimed at first year PhD students, it will be helpful for to post-graduate students at any stage. This event is free for all post-graduates at Cambridge University. To register please go to: Please register early to avoid disappointment as previous events have been oversubscribed. If the event is oversubscribed we will operate a waiting list. Registration will close on the 23rd of October.
