Hit the Ground Running: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences PhD Induction Event

Mon 15 Oct 2018


The Schools of the Arts & Humanities and the Humanities & Social Sciences have organised this event to help you settle into the Cambridge research environment, identify essential providers of advice and guidance, and make a positive start to your new research project. To hit the ground running, you need a sense of where you’re headed, so the theme of this induction is being strategic right from day one.

You will have chance to hear about information management from the Library, career support from the Careers Service, and personal development opportunities provided by the Researcher Development Programme.

This event is designed to complement other departmental and College inductions which you may have had.

Why Attend?

Past attendees have said:

“The sessions were very, very informative, issues were covered that never made an appearance in department, college inductions etc.”

“I felt encouraged and better equipped to undertake my PhD. There was a focus on developing holistically: not just as a researcher, but a future professional in an academic or non-academic job. Participants seemed to have students' well-being in mind and gave very helpful advice. The sessions were divided well and complemented each other nicely. There was a clear flow to the afternoon.”

“Very down to earth, applied advice based on real-life experience.”

“I especially liked the fact that we received so much information on one afternoon. It was great to have a quick overview of so many topics. Great also that we were told to look for more information on a specific topic, should we want to know more.”

“I think that this event is vital for new PhD students - it is important to start developing skills and career experience early on in the PhD experience so that by the time we graduate we can be compete in the tough job market. It definitely inspired me and I have already sought out opportunities to gain career experience and feel like I have a better plan of what I need to accomplish in 3 years.”
