At Yesbud University, we are passionate about your development and provide a training environment that will help you develop both the disciplinary excellence and knowledge around a specific area of research and a diverse, transferable skills base to ensure that you are competitive as a research leader across a range of career paths.
The Researcher Roadmap has been designed to help navigate your own PhD, to reflect on your progress and to check you are on track. It will also help you to personalise your development plan, to ensure you develop the skills, qualities and attributes to support your research degree and your future plans.
It helps to think of your doctoral studies journey in different phases, each of which will have different milestones and require different skills. Remember, there is no standard PhD and everyone’s journey will be individual to them and will have different development needs at different times. The phases are designed to help you navigate your PhD and reflect on your progress by providing prompts for upcoming review and reporting milestones and for the types of skills and activities you may be thinking about. There are also suggestions for courses, workshops and activities that may be useful during each of the phases. Using the phases, your tailored programs will range from research ethics and integrity to project management, leadership, communication, public engagement, enterprise and research impact.
