Competition Time! #PGRSelfCare

Whether you’re battling with data, or juggling ethics approval with publication deadlines, being a PGR can be tough. PGR well-being, maintaining a work-life balance, and where PGRs can find support are themes we’ve encountered a lot over the past year, and are very close to the blog team’s hearts. Taking time away from your PhD is just as essential as the hours spent wrangling MyCampus or tackling literature reviews. With this in mind, we thought it was about time we held another competition!
