Event description

Description

The annual ‘Life Beyond the PhD’ conference at Cumberland Lodge is a unique celebration of the postgraduate research culture in the UK.

Now in its tenth year, the conference invites PhD students and early career researchers to share their experiences, take part in training, and explore the value of doctoral research in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Delegates participate in workshops on communication, grant and job application writing, and public engagement. The conference offers opportunities to share research and aspirations, to explore collaborative and interdisciplinary ways of working, and to present to a diverse, non expert audience.

The event demonstrates that PhDs have a value both inside and outside academia. Over the last nine years over 400 students and early career researchers from 106 different Higher Education Institutions have participated in the annual ‘Life Beyond the PhD’ conference.

Whatever the future holds, the support networks established by these events have proved to be invaluable.
