We are excited to announce the third Cambridge DOCking station event “5 things I wish I’d known last year”. We will have a panel discussion of 2nd, 3rd and 4th years who will give 5 pieces of advice to those in the years below. This will be followed by questions for our panel followed by a chance to network with other current PhD students.

Due to the size of venue, we have limited places available. We will allocate places on a first-come-first-served basis. To secure your place, please register at:

Message for 1st years:  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 PhD students who are now in their 2nd and 3rd year of study.

Message for 2nd, 3rd and 4th years: We may like to feel that we know it all by now, but new challenges appear throughout a PhD. 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. It will also allow you to pass on pearls of wisdom to new PhD students you meet during the networking portion.
