We followed Abigail for 1 month in the autumn of 2015. We caught up with Abigail, now six months on from her last update, and heard about her trip to England to learn more about digital programming languages, converting manuscripts into digital formats, delivering a paper at a conference and managing to see all the panels on her list.
Get a real insight in to what it's like to do a PhD
Do you want to get a real insight in to what it's like to do a PhD? We thought the best way would be for PhDs themselves to show you with informative video blogs better known as vlogs.
We invited PhD students at various stages of their PhD and different locations to film themselves over 4 weeks and share their videos with you. Our vlogs cover everything from starting a PhD, moving abroad to do a PhD, finding funding opportunities to viva preparation and finding your first academic job.
We will be introducing new vloggers throughout 2016 and also returning to see how our other vloggers are getting on.
If you want to try vlogging yourself you can watch our tips video here. Please share these vlogs on social media using the links below and tell us what you think on Twitter using the hashtag #PhDvlog and @jobsacuk
