Postgrad Realities

Starting life as a postgraduate student can be very exciting, but also quite daunting. You will be delving deep into your own research, working closely with one or more supervisors, and networking within your field of study at seminars and conferences. You will also need to use your self-motivation and self-discipline to be able to balance your workload with other responsibilities and demands.

Postgrad Realities is a set of online modules produced by the Library and Wellbeing Support Services to provide you with the tools you'll need to tackle the twists and turns of your PhD and help you reach your full potential. Find out more here.
