A few months after I started my PhD project at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute on Helgoland in the Microbial Ecology Group, I participated in the course: “Coping with the challenges of a PhD” by TRESS ACADEMIC. It gave me a perfect overview on what a PhD is all about. I found the many exercises throughout the course to be very helpful. I really liked that they were tailored to my PhD project and subject matter. For example, I could already start working on a breakdown of my own project and restructure by identifying urgent and important tasks for the upcoming weeks, as well as thinking about possible risks and how to mitigate them. Furthermore, the course was well-structured, we got a really helpful handbook with all the important information in it, and the trainer took sufficient time to answer all our questions. The course finished with a short chapter on ‘life after the PhD’. I enjoyed this a lot because it put things into perspective for me. Now, I can paint a bigger picture of my life and what I really want to do.
I really recommend this course to PhD students who just started. You learn so many useful techniques, most of which you can directly implement and see an immediate improvement in your daily work.”
My first course that I attended from TRESS ACADEMIC was ‘Coping with the challenges of a PhD’. As PhD candidates, we think mostly about our own research scope, as well as the relevance of that work within our field, but very rarely about the “side things”. During the course, I discovered the crucial importance of all the “details” around a PhD, like administration, communication with supervisors, and planning the project, which were clarified before I was even confronted with these issues. Thanks to the course I was prepared to face these challenges as they popped up one-by-one during my PhD study. I knew where to look, whom to ask and how to react. Therefore, I didn’t waste my precious time and energy trying to find a solution and could focus fully on my work.
Doing this course within the first months of my doctoral studies was the best decision I took. Thanks to the course booklet, I have the information always at hand, even when I need it some months or even years later.”
The team at TRESS ACADEMIC is absolutely friendly and awesome! Regardless of your level of experience in research or the employment sector, they always have up-to-date knowledge to offer and help you gain new skills to accomplish your personal goals.
The two courses on conducting a PhD and publishing papers that I took with TRESS ACADEMIC have helped me learn a lot and shape my PhD from a vast project to its successful completion. Get in touch with TRESS ACADEMIC to manage the impossible!”
Last year I attended “Coping with the challenges of a PhD”. It was so easy to follow this course. I am now far better in managing my time in my daily routine in the laboratory.
If you want to improve your PhD study as well, I recommend taking this course!
