Focus on realising your potential.

This month Vitae’s ‘Focus on theme’ is realising your potential.

‘Your doctorate is more than a research project, it is an invaluable opportunity to develop yourself professionally and progress in your career. Make sure you make the most of this time by thinking about, and planning for, what comes next!

Whether you are just starting out or already juggling many balls; browse our advice, guidance and tools to help you. This ‘focus on’ is designed to help you think through your career goals, and discover the myriad of ways in which you can realise your potential as a researcher.’

Find out more on this topic and a whole range of resources offered by Vitae on their website.


The Doctoral College RDP workshops up until June 2018 are available to book for PGRs via the myBU BU: Doctoral College Community. If you are a PGR and cannot view this community please let us know and we will add you.

If you have any questions regarding PGR development or the Researcher Development Programme please get in touch with Natalie or Clare (Research Skills and Development Officers) at pgrskillsdevelopment@bournemouth.ac.uk.

Looking for a different way to disseminate your PhD research?

Do you want to showcase your PhD? Raise the profile of your research? Be in with the chance of winning over £500 worth in prizes?

If the answer is yes to any of the above then the 3MT® might be the opportunity for you.

The 3MT® competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills.

Presenting in a 3MT® competition increases capacity to effectively explain research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Eligibility: Active PhD and Professional Doctorate candidates who have successfully passed their transfer milestone (including candidates whose thesis is under submission) by the date of their first presentation are eligible to participate. If your Viva Voce will take place before the date of the University final (7 June 2018) you are not eligible to enter the competition.

Eligible applicants should submit a fully completed application form, to the Research Skills and Development Officers at PGRskillsdevelopment@bournemouth.ac.uk by midnight on Monday 5 February 2018.

We look forward to receiving your application.
