Pathways is an annual careers event for PhD researchers and research staff.
The event is designed to support delegates in making career choices, exploring future plans and discovering the breadth of opportunities available.
Comprising over 20 different panel based sessions with PhDs from a diverse range of career areas and backgrounds, plus seminars, there's something for all students and researchers from all areas of study and at any stage in their career planning.

Please register here before Wednesday 31 May.
Question and Answer panel sessions will take place throughout the morning session (9.45am-1.30pm), covering both academic and non-academic career options for researchers from all Faculties.
Previous discussion topics have included: research roles outside academia; industry vs academia; working overseas; changing your mind/changing your career; consultancy roles and self-employment; non-academic roles in universities.
Guest panellists include those who have either completed their PhDs or moved on from university research posts in the last 10 years, or who have expertise in the job market for PhDs and researchers.
After lunch, there will be a plenary seminar on what do recruiters/employers look for in PhD applicants.
The full programme for the day and information on the panellists who are attending the event will be uploaded here shortly.
Alongside the sessions, more informal individual or small group conversations take place in our Career Lounge throughout the day and there are plenty of opportunities to meet with our guests and other PhD students.
Lunch and refreshments provided.
