Making the Most of Your PHD - Tip 15

PHD does not have to be lonely

  • After all research is all about 'Standing on the shoulders of giants’ 
  • Science is made up of communities not lonely people (Professor Sarah Sharples) 
  • Learn from others – peers, present to mixed audiences, public 
  • Engineering and Science Graduate Centre (ESGC) and it's events 
  • Graduate school courses – mixed faculty audiences 
  • Share half-baked ideas with supervisors
  • Test ideas out, bounce ideas off peers
  • Make sure you ask for help if needed
  • Don’t isolate yourself
