How to Plan Your PhD

01 Jan
Online Course

A PhD is a major undertaking yet many people spend more time planning a weekend away than they do planning the next three years of their life. This generally leads to missing deadlines, running overtime, regular crises and lots of stress. If you want to finish on time and enjoy the process along the way then it is important to have a good plan. You need some very specific skills and tools to plan a PhD. This workshop will introduce you to the PhD Planning Toolkit.

This video podcast of a workshop given by Hugh Kearns in March 2016, describes the key habits that his research and experience with thousands of students shows will make a difference to how quickly and easily you complete your PhD. Just as importantly, these habits can greatly reduce the stress and increase the pleasure involved in completing a PhD.

Videos and accompanying slides and paperwork are available.
