AHRC Careers Outside Academia

Posted on

The AHRC is holding an event to showcase careers outside the academic sector for its current funded doctoral students. The event will be held at The Studio in Birmingham on Wednesday 17 February 2016

The day will consist of a panel discussion and four workshops involving representatives from a range of sectors, each examining the value of an arts and humanities doctorate to employers outside academia, and detailing possible career paths. The day will conclude with a careers surgery, at which students will be able to raise careers questions with workshop leaders and AHRC staff.

To register for the event, please complete and submit this online form by 5 pm on 28 January, ranking the four workshops in order of preference. You can attend two workshops, and we will aim to allocate attendees to their first choices, but please be aware that this may not be possible if your preferred options are already oversubscribed for both sessions.

Places at this event are limited, and will be allocated to the first current AHRC-funded doctoral students who apply. Those who register after the places are filled will be put on a reserve list, and will be offered a place if others withdraw. If, after registering, you decide that you no longer wish to attend, please let us know by emailing Researcher.Development@ahrc.ac.uk

The AHRC is unable to reimburse travel and subsistence expenses for this event. Students are recommended to check with their institutions to see if funds are available to cover the cost of attendance.
