Café PhD

Café PhD is an informal social event designed to enable anyone interested in starting a PhD to network with current doctoral researchers. 

If you are interested in starting a PhD then Café PhD offers you the perfect opportunity to:

  • Hear current PhD candidates talk about their research and tell you what it’s really like to be a doctoral researcher at Birmingham
  • Discuss any questions that you have about PhD study in a relaxed and social atmosphere
  • Get advice on the application process, writing your research proposal and sources of funding
  • Enjoy free refreshments

Anyone who is considering starting a PhD is warmly welcome to come along, no matter what stage you are at in the decision-making process.
