Workshops offered for Postgraduate Researchers include Preparing for Transfer and For the Viva, the latter running twice a year in October and next May as part of a Finishing Development Day along with Editing and Finishing Your Thesis and Proofreading your Work. Getting Started 1 and 2 are for research students just starting out and include workshops such as Setting out, Writing and Structuring your Thesis, Systematic Literature Searching and Risk Assessing your Research. We also have Development Days on Getting Published and Effective Progress, the latter for students mid-way through their doctoral studies. All these Development Days are planned months in advance so students can take time off work to attend. Students can also attend via Skype/Collaborate.

Kearns2The popular Hugh Kearns is visiting us in 2019 to run Turbocharge your Writing for PGR Students and a Masterclass for Research Degree Supervisors. We are also offering PGR Students a dedicated writing retreat day, facilitated by the excellent Dr Alison Hardy.

For all researchers, the Programme includes training on SPSS and Nvivo, skills development on Argument Mapping, Grounded Theory and general workshops on qualitative research methods and managing qualitative data.

You can see the full programme on the Gateway Calendar (log in with your UoN user name and password). The workshops are listed by date – click on the workshop of interest and click on the green button to book. For workshop booking guidance please see the guide here.
