The third run of a free online course for research students and early career research staff  entitled Career Management for Early Career Academic Researchers is now open for bookings.

The MOOC is a collaboration between the University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh, and University of Sheffield and is available  to students and staff  at any institution worldwide.

It aims to support researchers to explore their career options and make career plans.

There are a few quotes from participants of previous courses below.

This course has been fantastic, particularly as I am at a stage where I am finishing my PhD and was worrying about what comes next. I didn’t realise a lot of the things about academic and non-academic career paths, and have found the self reflection tasks invaluable.

 The course is impeccably designed, perfectly structured and neatly organised.

 My motivation to take control of finding my future career has increased exponentially from the day I started this course.

 

Through a series of articles, videos, discussions, and reflective exercises, researchers will be encouraged to consider what they want out of a career; to explore the academic career path and many other career options; and to increase their confidence in job search and applications.

 

The course will start on 21st January  2019- for more information and sign up details go to:
