Peers for PhDs is a student-led project for people undertaking PhDs at the University of Liverpool.

We aim to support wellbeing by providing opportunities for postgraduate researchers from across the university to meet, share practical solutions to common challenges and support each through the ups and downs of the PhD.

Events and Networking

The Peers for PhDs group hosts regular themed events. These are roughly once a month and are currently held online via Zoom. Some of the topics we discuss include managing stress and anxiety, developing your PhD support network, tackling imposter syndrome, balancing PhD life with other commitments, and sessions focused on keeping motivated during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Peers are encouraged to suggest topics that they would find useful throughout their PhD journey and we welcome ideas and feedback.

Whatever stage of the PhD journey you are at, whatever your mode of study or your research topic, all University of Liverpool PhDs are welcome.
