TS00150 PhD@UCD

Academic Year 2019/2020

This workshop, led by the Dean of Graduate Studies, aims to introduce you to what it means to do a PhD at UCD. The workshop provides clarification on the role of each element of the UCD Structured PhD and provides tips for navigating through the early stages of your PhD programme. The workshop offers a forum for discussion of expectations associated with your journey towards the PhD and raises awareness of the support mechanisms available to you. The workshop also aims to provide an outline of a number of first principles of PhD research which will help you, not only with research planning, but also with your professional development. A more in-depth consideration of the individual principles (research skills, career planning, library skills, research integrity etc.) will be offered via other workshops in the UCD Transferable Skills portfolio, in some cases tailored to your broad disciplinary area. This workshop provides a forum for discussion as to why these principles are important and useful to you as an early stage researcher regardless of your area of research.
The workshop will include small group discussions with short presentations and active participation is expected.
