The PhD Life Raft Podcast
Doing a PhD is tough. The PhD Life Raft is here to help get you through.
The PhD Life Raft
It can be hard to know where to turn during a PhD, especially as universities can often feel like pressurised environments where it seems important to always been seen to be at your best.
Hosted by Dr Emma Brodzinski PhD (supervisor, examiner and once part-time PhD student), The PhD Life Raft will focus on sharing insights and experiences around some common issues like anxiety, procrastination, precariousness, imposter syndrome, and work-life balance (spoiler alert – yes, it is OK to take time off at the weekend!) We will talk to students, supervisors and experts in the field of wellbeing and mental health and share actionable tips and additonal resources.
The PhD life raft sadly can’t offer any quick fixes, but it will offer a space to discuss pressing issues; explore possible strategies; and provide sources of support for your journey.
