Doctoral Training Programmes and faculty/school events

Our specialist senior careers advisers, Clare Jones and Kirstin Barnard, deliver presentations and workshops at specific events as part of Doctoral Training Programmes, faculty, school or departmental training programmes. These workshops include both Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Strong Interest Inventory. Please email us to find out more.

Career development online course 

Our new course, Thinking Ahead - Exploring Career Options is an online Moodle course which we would like to encourage all PhDs to take. Ideally take this course during your first half of your research degree.

There are three modules:

  • Module 1: Thinking About Yourself
  • Module 2: Thinking About Your Options
  • Module 3: Career Decisions

  • Spotlight On - an insight into sectors
  • Skills workshops - covering all aspects of the recruitment process
