About Thesis Hub

The goal of this website is to help postgraduate students gain mastery over the non-scientific aspects of getting a PhD.

Former PhD students, when asked, usually claim that the general experience of being a graduate student, which includes learning how to solve complex problems and work well with others, was of greater value to their careers than the actual topic of their thesis.

Generally, PhD students and their supervisors tend to focus primarily, or even exclusively, on the content of the research that will go into the doctoral thesis. Other issues are often taken for granted:

• How to organize your work
• Give a presentation
• Work in a team
• Cope with your supervisor
• And how to effectively manage your time.

Hopefully, this page will help graduate students more fully enjoy their doctoral years, as well as provide some much-needed support as they prepare for their post-PhD careers.
