Being a postgraduate researcher isn't just about producing a piece of academic work. It's about developing skills that will help you succeed in your chosen career.
University of York PhD researchers have developed this resource to help you get the most out of your PhD experience by sharing what they've learned along the way.
Here, you will find brief advice on what they wish they had known right from the start of their PhD journeys.
