Life Beyond the PhD

Please consider supporting your PhD students and post-graduate community to attend this event. The conference costs £250 inclusive of registration, 3 nights shared accommodation and all food.
Cumberland Lodge has developed a unique celebration of the postgraduate research culture in the UK. Each year we set aside four days in August in which we invite PhD students to hear leading public figures recount the life decisions they made after their PhDs, as well as hearing from experts in higher education policy, communication, career development and impact.
