The Impostors - EP3 - Rites of Passage Fri, 2018-06-15 16:34

In this episode of The Impostors we look back to the different rites of passage we have to go through as PhD students; from the first year upgrade, to the submission of the thesis, to the viva. Are rites of passage useful to think about, or are these just bureaucratic formalities? And how do we get ourselves through it all? Here is some great advice from people that have been (almost!) through it all.
