The Home Stretch Program

Provider business unit: Researcher Development »

We know that the last stage of a PhD can be hard, so ANU has developed a special series of events and activities to help you finish quicker and with less stress. The Home Stretch program is offered to all candidates at the beginning of their third year and is designed to support people through to completion. The Home Stretch includes specialised workshops and coaching programs, to equip candidates with the mindset, tools, and tactics to approach the end of candidature with confidence. All candidates who join The Home Stretch program will be offered a place in the 20,000-word boot camp.

The program components can be taken together, or as segments, depending on what is most useful to individual HDRs. Sessions are mostly delivered online, but some face-to-face activities will be introduced in 2023.
