TCELT Transitions Community Compass

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Calum MacGillivray and Fahd Ali Asif are doctoral students in the School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Law, at the University of Dundee. Calum is in his first year of full time PhD studies, whereas Fahd is in the fourth year of his part time professional doctorate. They are both undertaking transitions research.

They have experienced several educational and life transitions as a result of starting on their doctoral journeys. They discussed these as part of the TCELT Transitions Community Compass, as well as provided opportunities to others to ask them questions and share their own experiences. They finished off with a discussion of strategies that may support other doctoral students and their supervisors, but also the wider community whom doctoral students meet on a day-to-day basis.
