Graduate School Update Day looks to the future for research students

Signpost

Every year The Graduate School holds an ‘Update Day‘ where the focus is on topics of interest to supervisors and their postgraduate research students. This year, after an update on UoN ethics processes, a session on ‘Researcher Futures’ looks at career direction strategies beyond academia for researchers. In an employment landscape vastly different from that 20 years ago, research students often look to their supervisor for guidance on career support, even on non-academic choices. This workshop will help both supervisors and PGR students together to

  • explore the pathways open to research degree graduates outside of academia;
  • introduce techniques and resources that can support further career exploration and decision making;
  • recognise potential in skills, experience, attributes and achievements whether the student wants a career in academia or, increasingly commonly, outside it.

For more information please see the programme or book via Eventbrite.
