Taking the long view of your doctorate & beyond

A doctorate is a long project and you need to take a long view of it.  In this section you will find videos about planning ahead at every stage – from your decision to do a doctorate through to your employability after you’ve finished it.

The ‘Should I do a PhD?’ Video asks doctoral students what they wish they had known before they started.

The Good Doctorate Video has practical advice for managing your time and completing your thesis on schedule.

Financial planning to survive your doctorate and complete it.

The Research Impact Video is about building ‘real world’ impact into your doctoral project.  For many, this can enhance your employability once you’ve completed.

The ‘What Next?’ Video discusses what else PhD students should do, apart from working on their thesis, to become employable when they finish, whether in academic careers or elsewhere.
