Event description

Description

The recruitment process is vital to successful doctoral study to ensure that supervisors have high quality doctoral candidates with the aptitude and appetite for doctoral study. Currently up to 10% of doctoral researchers start but fail to complete their doctorate, which wastes time, effort and resources. This session will outline best practice in recruitment with hints and tips for effective advertising, the selection process, and converting offers into registered students. It will de-mystify the studentship funding cycle and signpost external funding opportunities, as well as highlighting mechanisms to boost the proportion of high quality, externally-funded doctoral researchers, which is crucial to advancing our research endeavour.
