In this session, we will discuss some tips, tools, and best practices to help you make the best use of social media to help you reach new audiences, engage with various types of audiences, and how to use social media as a tool to help you develop your career.

This webinar is aimed at all ESRC DTP cohorts. The information and advice will be focused around managing your studentship in relation to time planning, managing your health, and understanding how your ESRC funding works. In particular, UKRI research councils are limited in their flexibility around extensions and it is important that all DTP PhD researchers are aware of these limitations but also know about the other resources they can potentially utilise at Cambridge to help them through the three years of their doctorate.

We encourage everyone to attend. In addition, anyone who has health difficulties should come along to understand how this could impact on their PhD timeline and how planning at an early stage could be helpful.
