This intensive school comprises a broad menu of workshops and challenges led by different employers designed to offer students an insight into opportunities beyond their PhD.


A wide range of employers join the school to offer workshops designed to show what life in a given industry sector type is like and what kind of work is involved. Students choose to take four of these over two days.


A consultancy challenge is run another day. High-tech companies come with real science problems and invite students, working in teams, to create solutions using the skills they have learnt in their PhD.


The whole event is threaded through with short sessions led by expert speakers looking at some of the issues that confront those working in science: Outreach, Impact, IPR, Ethics and the like.

You will not incur any personal costs for attending this workshop.  For residential events SEPnet charges your Department £100.  We have been made aware of the fact that some departments pass this charge on to research groups and/or project research training support grants (RTSG).  If you are concerned about this, or are unsure of your department policy we advise you to ask either your PhD supervisor, Postgraduate Training Director or GRADnet Administrator.
