Day 1: Career planning essentials
How do you build a successful career after your degree? Day 1 will prepare you to build a career plan, polish up your communication skills, identify research-funding sources and find out who can help you along the way.

Day 2: Literature reviews, step-by-step
Literature reviews and searching are critical building blocks for a successful research proposal. Our seminars and workshops will show you step by step: how to start your literature review, gain confidence in searching through disciplinary-based databases and organise your sources effectively using EndNote.

Day 3: Research methods for beginners
Get prepared and grounded in research methods, including qualitative and quantitative methods, research ethics, management and integrity and data management planning.

Day 4: Publishing and dissemination
Learn insider secrets to getting published and cited. Our sessions will cover how to develop a successful publishing strategy, increase the impact of your work with online media and use data visualisation techniques for effective storytelling.

Day 5: Self-care
Your physical and psychological well-being matters. UTS experts will share tips and resources and topics they wish someone had told them at the start of their research journeys, such as: managing stress and building resilience. We wrap up Research Week with a film screening, so curl up with a beanbag and popcorn and enjoy the show!
