Postgraduate Research Supervision Elective: Helping Doctoral Students to Plan their Career

Candidates come to doctoral research with a wide variety of expectations and ambitions and possible destinations.

The workshop will explore questions around how and what support the supervisor could give to candidates, when the transition process should start and how might the candidate and supervisor benefit from a planned transition.
