Write more and worry less with a PhD masterclass

Whether you’re struggling to plan or write your thesis, worried about your viva, need help publishing your first article, or are looking for wellbeing advice, we’ve got you covered.

Hosted by world class academics and educators, these virtual, small group PhD Masterclasses are designed to fill gaps in your knowledge and understanding. 

They’re all offered on Zoom, and most are recorded, meaning you can watch back as many times as you like (even if you aren’t able to tune in live).

Check out the listings below to see how we can help.

FAQs

Are the events recorded?

Most events are recorded, and a copy of the recording (and slides) will be sent to you a day or so after the event (check the spam folder, just in case). Each event listing clearly states whether they event is recorded (95% are). 

We send the recording and slides to all ticket-holders, even if you don’t attend the session in real time.

That way, if you’re in a time-zone that makes it hard to attend in real-time, you’ll still have a chance to learn. Simply grab your ticket, and look out for the recording a day or so after the event

Where will the workshops take place?

The event I am interested in is sold out. What should I do?

If you can’t make an event, email support@thephdproofreadefs.com letting us know your name and the event title and date. We’ll send you a recording and the slides, or where this isn’t possible, we’ll refund your ticket price.
