You also get access to all future updates and new courses.
All our courses are pre-recorded so you can go through them at your own pace and revisit them whenever you need to.
Each week we cover a different theme, either to support or revisit the content from the courses (because repetition is important!) or to explore other aspects of PhD life.
You'll see many of the same faces every week and it's a great way to meet other PhD students in similar situations and get personalised guidance.
The sessions last around 1 hour.
We hold two sessions every Wednesday, at 9 am and 4 pm UK time.

Whatever you're struggling with right now, it's quite likely that someone else has gone through something similar. You don't have to figure it all out on your own!
