Doctoral Training Academy 2020
Webinar for students and ECRs
The Doctoral Training Academy is directed to student- and early-career researchers. It delivers important key skills to the participants who are either undertaking PhDs in European Union Studies or are at an early stage in their career as European Union Studies academics.
Session 1: Mental Health and Professional Opportunities
Covid has made life in general and studying for a PhD more difficult, not to mention the impact it has had on professional opportunities. In the first session, 4 experts in the field of European Studies and UACES members talk about their own experiences and give helpful information on how to keep a healthy work-life balance.
