Study in the UK Information Session

Date: Thu, April 5, 2018 RSVP Now!

Location: 12 Washington Place

Time: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT

Description:  RSVP Now!  There are many reasons why pursuing graduate study in the U.K is a good idea. Your academic discipline might be understood quite differently in the UK, with different underlying philosophical or methodological assumptions. Doing graduate work abroad will widen your sense of what kind of work you do (and how you should do it), along with strengthening your sense of an international academic community. If you already have a Masters, you might be drawn by the possibility of enrolling in a Doctorate of Philosophy, which is essentially a three-year graduate degree that would give you the British equivalent of a PhD. And if you’re interested in an international career, studying abroad offers a great launching pad. Learn more about graduate study opportunities in the UK at this information session.
