Are you doing a PhD, or considering doing one some day in the future?
We interviewed six current and former PhD candidates at some of the world's great universities - Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton - to get the low-down on what it's really like. They share some great wisdom, sometimes with the benefit of a little hindsight, for how to approach your PhD to make life that bit easier.
If you're in the middle of a PhD or about to start one, you'll learn a highly actionable set of tips for:
- Managing your time
- Setting goals
- Staying positive
- Coping when the going gets tough (because it will)
If you're thinking of doing a PhD one day, our guests today offer a rare insight into what doctorate research is really like - find out what you're getting into before you take the plunge!
