Skills perceptions of PhD Graduates Beyond University

Project: Research - Studentship

Project Details

Description

This student-led project has constructed a picture of the skills and graduate attributes that former Postgraduate Research (PGRs) students perceive as valued by employers. The project has explored previous students’ perceptions of the strengths and skills gained during their PGR experience that helped them to secure employment, as well as the support they accessed during their studies when preparing for their transition beyond academia. Recommendations following this study include further training and support for students in areas where there are perceived skills gaps, and training for supervisors in supporting the personal development of PGR students.
