Health, wellbeing and work-life balance in the PhD: an online workshop

How to Survive your PhD: Health, wellbeing and work-life balance


The PhD journey is acknowledged as a roller coaster, with many highs and lows. Succeeding in the PhD is as much about finding ways to maintain a healthy sense of wellbeing and a good work-life balance as it is about doing the actual research. 

In this workshop, you’ll get to meet and hear from a panel of current PhD students and post-doctoral fellows, who will share personal experiences and stories about how they navigated the challenges of a PhD, and the practices or activities that helped to keep them healthy and happy.

Based on feedback from previous ‘PhD Survival’ sessions, we plan for this session to provide a lot more time for smaller, breakout group discussions and Q&A with panel speakers. There will also be plenty of time opportunity to network and meet other PhD students across all departments at York!
