New Doctoral Research Student ‘Lunch Breaks’!

The research student community is planning monthly informal meetings over lunch to share ideas and problems, network… or just chat. The group meetings have been instigated by research student Anna Maria Everding, from the School of the Arts, as a chance for peer support and as a response to feelings of isolation that research students can face.

Deli lunchBased in the Schools, research student communities often feel fragmented, not having a central place to gather and talk outside of their disciplines. The lunch breaks will counterbalance this by offering a ‘place’ for students to gather. It is hoped that further down the line other socials might include meals and seminars with social time after. If you are interested in organising anything please contact Simone Apel.

The first meeting is on Thursday 15th May at the Avenue restaurant at 12:30, so why not bring your own lunch and join us. All doctoral research students, from all disciplines, are welcome.
