Support: Second-year postgraduate students attended the UCT PhD retreat

A group of 35 second-year postgraduate students from various faculties received a boost when a mix of seasoned and up-and-coming researchers shared their learning experiences at the two-day annual UCT PhD retreat from 4 to 5 September at the Cape Manor Hotel.

At the retreat, academics talked about lessons they had learnt on their PhD journeys, such as how to maintain relationships with supervisors and how to tackle writing their theses, among others.

Kathy Erasmus of the Centre for Higher Education Development, which organised the event, said the idea is to stimulate the development of a vibrant intellectual community of doctoral students across disciplinary and institutional lines.
