How to book Graduate School workshops and events on Gateway workshops and events organised by the Graduate School are now available to view and book via Gateway, our online postgraduate research management system.

  1. Go to Gateway.
  2. Log in, choose the link ‘Calendar’ from the left hand menu.
  3. Click on the title of the workshop you’re interested in – all workshops/events are in date order.
  4. Click on the Green dot ‘Respond’.
  5. Choose ‘Attending’ then submit. You have the option to write a note, for instance if you know you’re going to be late arriving at the workshop.
  6. If you subsequently need to cancel your place just repeat the process and change the response to ‘Not Attending’.
  7. If you are interested in the workshop but cannot attend the date scheduled then choose Defer. This will let me know that you are interested in attending another time. We may be able to schedule the workshop again.
  8. To check which workshops you have booked onto and generate a list of attendances, read on.

Development area for PGR students

There are a number of professional development tools in Gateway for PGR students. Choose My Project and you will see a Development section in the right hand menu, near the bottom of the page.

Workshops: You can see a list of workshops you’ve been invited to, booked and attended. You will also see status for workshops you booked and didn’t attend (no-shows). So if you cannot attend, please cancel your booking  beforehand by following steps 1-4, then 6 (above)! Also in this section you can add other external workshops, conference presentations and other development which you have attended.

Training needs / Training plan: Using the Vitae Researcher Development Framework you can create training needs. You can also produce a training plan which you can share with your supervisor.

Research diary: You can also create a research diary, which you can keep to yourself or share selected entries with your supervisor.

If you need any help with using these tools then please email Simone for a one-to-one.
