Post Viva Planning (AHSS)

Tue 5 Mar 2024


Now that you have successfully defended your thesis, it's time to shift your focus to the next phase of your academic and personal life. In this workshop, we will help you navigate the transition and develop an action plan to achieve your short to mid-term essentials and milestones.

We will guide you through practical exercises that will help you establish and maintain career and personal goals, identify potential obstacles, and develop strategies to overcome them. We will also cover essential skills for managing stress, such as effective time management, prioritization, and self-care.

By the end of this workshop, you will have a clear roadmap for your post-viva life and the tools to maintain focus and momentum. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other PhD students and build a supportive community to help you achieve your goals. Don't miss out on this valuable opportunity to invest in your future!
