Graduate School workshops and events coming up!

The Graduate School Development Programme has a variety of different workshops and events running in February for doctoral students and early career researchers.

Featured are three development days; one for all research students on publishing and promoting your research, another is a finishing day, for research students nearing the end of their doctorate, which includes workshops on finishing your thesis, preparing for the viva and proofreading your work. And we are also running our first ever leadership skills for researchers day.

Our main event this month is the launch of Images of Research Competition 2015-16. The Images of Research 2015-16 drinks reception will be held on Monday 1st February in Avenue Gallery Corridor from 5-6:30pm. Please come along – all invited. The exhibition will remain here until 19th February so do visit the exhibition and vote for your top three favourites.

Workshops running in February and early March include using MS Excel for statistics, mock interview and CV careers workshops, and a workshop looking at building professional relationships and how to get the best from the student/supervisor relationship.
