This editorial provides an overview that summaries the third Granite symposium held in March 2019. The symposium spanned over two days and witnessed a series of presentations from PhD students in various departments in the university. Research presentations also ran alongside student engagement activities and intellectual workshops from experienced staffs in the university. The symposium was organised to aid student confidence in articulating their research, receive feedback on their public speaking skills and network with other students from an interdisciplinary background. It is deemed that the continuation of the Granite symposiums will help PhD students in the university learn the essential skills that boasts their personal development as they progress through the PhD journey.
