What is FITZ+?

In a nutshell, FITZ+ is a new initiative, started this academic year, to help you get more from Fitz. 

Study. Life. Careers.

The programme of talks, workshops and conversations are designed to support both undergraduate and postgraduate students, whatever stage you're at, and whatever you want to do. We will work through core skills, offer targeted support in areas identified as particularly useful each term, and create a space in which students can ask for what they need.

Each Michaelmas starts with a set of taster events (open to all students, compulsory for Freshers), designed to introduce you to the programme and show you how different types of session work. Taster events focus on core skills, vital to all students, whatever your academic background. Sessions last Michaelmas included:

  • How to get the most out of your PhD supervisions
  • Making criticism feel good: how to get the most out of supervisions
  • Do you want to be a postgraduate?
  • Quick guide to the Careers Service
  • How to write an essay
  • How do I get a paid internship? And why would I want one?
