I’ll be leaving UoN tomorrow. I’d like to send my best wishes to all of you – supervisors, postgraduate researchers and everyone I’ve worked with during my time here. It’s been lovely working with you all and thank you for accepting me into the fold six year’s ago. What a super team of people I have had the pleasure of working with! I will miss you.
Best of luck with your research whatever the topic, wherever you go and hope to see you when I visit. If you find yourself at Nottingham Trent University do hunt me down! Goodbye and good luck with Waterside, All the best, Simone.

The university runs a development programme for supervisors who are new to research degree supervision, co-ordinated by Professor Ian Livingstone. It is a validated university postgraduate course and it is delivered as two modules – Workshops and Observation. It is a requirement of our research degree regulations that everyone who is new to supervision takes the first module – the workshops. The second module is optional but if you complete both you are awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Degree Supervision which you can count as one completion when putting together supervisory teams. Even if you have previously supervised research students, there may be some elements of the programme that you would find useful.
In 2018/19 the workshops will be delivered on:
Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st February 2019 at Platform in the centre of Northampton Read the rest of this entry
