Promoting Academic Practice
amongst doctoral students

Preparing for Academic Practice

This website is for those who are studying for a doctorate, or who are in the early stages of developing a career beyond their PhD. It aims to demystify the PhD process and give you opportunities to reflect on your academic practice.

Content for this site has been derived from recent research projects conducted at universities around the UK by those working to support PhD researchers in their academic and professional development.

As you move around the site, you will see that different resources are informed by different research projects.

These projects were funded by the University of Oxford’s Centre for Excellence in Preparing for Academic Practice that was based at the Oxford Learning Institute. We hope you will find the resources available here helpful.
