Beyond the PhD

Beyond the PhD offers thought provoking personal and professional insights into life after the PhD. It looks at the wide range of pathways taken by those with a PhD in an arts and humanities discipline. Beyond the PhD was developed as a career resource for arts and humanities PhD researchers by the UK Centre for Career Management Studies (CCMS).

Interviewees describe their PhD experience; the period of transition from their final year of writing-up to their subsequent employment; the contexts in which they currently work, and how the PhD has equipped them for their role. As well as responding to specific questions about, for example, the practical career-building activities they have engaged in, interviewees also reflect on more philosophical questions surrounding personal identity in relation to both work and the PhD.

In addition to autobiographical material, this site also features articles that offer personal perspectives on issues that are relevant to PhD researchers and their career development. The site also features a collection of video clips of small group discussions about similar issues from a professional perspective.
