PhD Chat

PhD Chat events are informal talks and discussions on prominent topics to postgraduate researchers at the University of Birmingham. They are delivered by the people that know best: postgraduate researchers (and where appropriate, academics). PhD Chat events are a great way to meet new people in an informal and friendly setting, and learn from other postgraduate researchers at the University of Birmingham.

PhD Chat wants you

If you are a postgraduate researcher at the University of Birmingham and you have an idea for a talk that your peers from across disciplines would be interested in, you can deliver a talk at the PhD Chat.Some topics that we cover are related to: Managing your time during your postgraduate journey, work-life balance, dealing with writer's block etc.

We can also accommodate more than one speaker for many of our talks, so if there is a topic that you feel you can contribute to, please get in touch with us.

Email graduateschool@contacts.bham.ac.uk if you are interested in getting involved or would like to receive more information about our events.
