Completing a PhD is difficult, but rewarding. It is easier with support and advice. PhD Paths supports PhD students, particularly those from professional backgrounds such as information systems, education, engineering, law and medicine, through all stages of their journey. Whether you are still deciding whether to enroll, applying for a program, starting your research, or deep into it, PhD Paths can help with advice, tools and tricks and the motivation you need.
The PhD is an academic qualification, and not always a good fit for professionals. PhD Paths explains the academic culture and expectations and gives you the tools to succeed.
