Beginnings – Advice for starting a PhD

I wrote down the things I wish I’d known when I started, and I asked fellow PhD students and academics what advice they would give to themselves on the first day of their PhD, knowing what they do now. I asked around the Psychology PhD office at Royal Holloway, University of London (which is where I’m based when I’m not working from home) and took to Twitter to gather some advice from a bit further afield.
