Supporting your PhD and beyond: a training needs focus group for final year PhD students

Thu 30 Jul 2020


We want to hear YOUR views on training. Are you struggling to find high-quality online resources? Looking forward to some live sessions to break the boredom? Fed up of training altogether? Whatever your thoughts are, we'd love to hear them.

Following the lockdown, the way we offer training has changed radically and we want to make sure that we are still meeting your needs. Come along for an informal chat with colleagues from Researcher Development and Cambridge University Libraries to help shape our programmes for the next academic year and beyond.

This is also a chance for you to reflect on your professional development and discuss it with other students and with experts. You will hear how other PhD students from a variety of disciplines approach their professional development. You will also find out more about what training opportunities exist at Cambridge.

This session will be held online via MS Teams, you will receive joining instructions the day before the session.

Target audience
  • PhD students at the start of their programme (first year or equivalent)

Number of sessions: 1
