As we enter the blessed month of Ramadan, many of us find it tricky to strike a balance between studying and taking advantage of the blessings and rewards of the month. It's understandable that long days of fasting and short nights may impact your levels of productivity throughout the day, which is why we've put together this booklet to help you throughout this month!
Following on from our successful "Insight to PhD" event last year. We held a similar 2 day Series which featured keynote speakers from academia & industry, as well as now-PhD students who attended our event last year! We also cover what a PhD is, if it's right for you & how to go about applying.
For this unique webinar we explored the intersection of medicine and research. Talented medical doctors & researchers shared their journeys of how they came to pursue both medicine & research at a high level, and the doors it may open in the future.
In this event, we were thrilled to collaborate with Anaga Network. The event comprised a Q&A and a discussion where a range of Somali professionals provided quality advice and tips & tricks on how to succeed during your time at University. We also put together a Somali students guide that you can download!
In this event we were excited to collaborate with The Failforward Hub for our second part of the #BeyondAcademia series. Several high profile professionals shared insights to leadership roles across various public and private sectors, such as the UN, academia & humanitarian sector.
This first part, of a 2 part webinar, explored influential Somali professionals within our communities and across various sectors ranging from Film & Football to Trauma Surgery. Through a series of talks, each professional discussed key practical skills they've developed over their careers that are relevant to their respective fields.
This event aimed to provide members of our community with the information and resources to apply for a PhD in the UK as well as provide advice for Somali students interested in pursuing a PhD. It received a lot of attention and support from our community and showed there was a gap between academia and our community.
