Event description

Description

Our annual ‘Life Beyond the PhD’ conference is a unique, interdisciplinary celebration of research culture in the UK.

Now in its 12th year, it gives PhD students and early-career researchers the opportunity to share their experiences, develop their transferrable skills, and explore the value of doctoral research in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Delegates participate in workshops on:

  • Public engagement

  • Self-leadership

  • Interdisciplinary research proposals

  • Mental health for researchers

  • Presentation and writing skills

  • Sharing research with a non-specialist audience.

This renowned conference will give you the opportunity to share your research and aspirations, to explore collaborative and interdisciplinary ways of working, and to meet other doctoral students from a range of backgrounds and disciplines.

Over the last 11 years, more than 450 students and early career researchers from 105 higher education institutions have participated in this event. Whatever the future holds, The support networks established by these events have proved to be invaluable.
