PhD LIVE Virtual Study Fair

PhD LIVE Virtual Study Fair features webinars to provide you with the latest PhD information and advice to help you take the next steps.

Understand your PhD options

When it comes to PhD study, it can be a challenge to get a real grasp on what is right for you. If you’re unsure about funding opportunities, research proposals or finding the right supervisor, the PhD LIVE Virtual Study Fair can help you understand your options. At the event, you can speak directly to universities and find out about their PhD projects. Getting information on your research interests is quick and easy, and you can search for universities and specific programmes once you’re in the fair. You’re also able to download information packs provided at the event so that you can read them at your own leisure.

Dedicated chat times

The fair has a dedicated chat time between 11am-3pm BST (GMT+1), allowing you to get your questions answered in an instant. Chat live with university representatives about their PhD projects, funding, supervisors, experience and expectations. If you don't have any questions, you can look at their booths, videos and the latest information.

Funding advice

With research council funding applications now open, speak to university representatives about your options and get advice on putting an outstanding application together.
