Different phases of your PhD

The first year of the PhD journey is to a certain extent structured, where you focus on the development of a research plan, aims and objectives. This follows with potentially and comparatively less structured middle phase of your doctorate, and which may leave students feeling a bit lost and puzzled as how to proceed. Once you pass that phase you move on to the completion of your doctorate.

About this event

Although each phase is different, the key to success at each is to maintain motivation and momentum. Come to this session to hear how recent PhD graduates tackled the challenges of staying on track, and gain supervisory advice and guidance on how to support one another's doctoral progress.

Tips to keep your momentum

If you cannot join us, please remember those few tips to keep your momentum going:

  • Don't work all the time. You need to take quality time away from your research and on regular basis
  • Keep your hobbies or get one. It is a great way to meet new people and keep yourself motivated and fresh for your research work
  • Don't isolate yourself
  • Break down your workload into smaller chunks and give yourself rewards once you meet your stepping-stone targets.

This event is aimed at all postgraduate researchers.

Cost: Free for UWE Bristol postgraduate researchers
