The Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change on Thursday, 6th June will host its fourth annual PhD Forum in the Hardiman Research Building at NUI Galway.

The Forum is a one-day event for PhD students, which aims to provide students with a day to interact and network with each other, to gain helpful advice about the PhD process, and to celebrate their research.
The event is suited to students at all stages of their PhD studies. Participants will have an opportunity to meet and interact with other PhD students, to gain advice from PhD supervisors and other University colleagues, to share their PhD experiences, and to get suggestions and ideas to support their research.

This is a full day event. In the morning, PhD students will receive coaching in managing their personal PhD experience. An additional session will feature advice on research careers and preparing a development plan. In the afternoon, there will be a session on PhD regulations and the PhD Viva. There will also be a special session on the introduction to research data management.

The day will also include a poster display of PhD research in the Hardiman Foyer.

The draft agenda for the day is available here.

This is a free event and open to all PhD students. Coffee and lunch will be provided. Students attending will also receive a pack with an updated and extremely helpful Viva guide, as well as other resources.
