We offer lots of support whether you intend to develop your career within or outside of academia. Having the space and time to talk with an adviser gives you the opportunity to ask the questions that matter to you.
Whatever the outcome [of the interview], I would like to say thank you for your help with my application form and interview advice. I would not have made it that far without it!
PhD student, School of Medicine
PhD appointments are offered by senior careers advisers, Kirstin Barnard and Lucie Whitfield. You can also book an appointment with your Faculty Team's careers consultant or senior careers adviser.
You can talk to an adviser about any aspect of your career plans including:

- interview support and preparation
You can choose to attend an appointment by phone, in person or online via MS Teams.
Appointments are available up to two weeks in advance.
If there are no appointments available and you have an application or interview deadline, or you are a part-time PhD student, please email us to discuss arranging a specific appointment time.
