4 Tips for a Successful Academic Year in Graduate School

Last week on the Fancy Scientist podcast, I went over what graduate school was like and what it’s all about. This week, I talk about how you can have a successful year. 

Graduate school is not like undergrad. You can’t just study hard and do well – there’s so much more to it. 

I give away my 4 most important tips for you to set yourself up for a successful academic year. Even if you are not in graduate school, or even in this career, almost all of these tips translate into any career.

These are the tips I wish I had starting out! Seriously, it would have made life so much easier for me – so don’t miss out.
