Making the Most of Your PHD - Tip 13

Be as interdisciplinary as possible.
  • Broaden your horizons
  • Engage with public
  • Venture outside subject area by attending seminars put on by other schools/faculties
  • New research angles
  • Alternative perspectives
  • New contacts or future collaborators
  • New or future research directions
  • Extended reach and impact of research
  • You never know where your research will have greatest impact
  • Supervisors from two different faculties a bonus - but expect conflicting advice and diverse approaches
  • Gap in knowledge – can you take a relevant module?
