Phone-a-Thesis! Round 2 of a great initiative for PGRs is open!

It’s time for round 2 of Phone a Thesis! The proactive “Phone a Thesis” project promotes additional peer support for PGRs, with the aim of giving us opportunities to talk to other PGRs about our research, to get us used to practicing this with like-minded other students in a supportive way.

Here’s how it works… You give us a short synopsis about your thesis. We put together all of the summaries we get onto an interest page. Everyone then picks their top three summaries of interest. Once all of the entries and selections have been made, the project leads can match people up to Phone a Thesis! A date and time will be arranged for a phone call – online or face to face. Then it’s time to relax, enjoy, listen and chat about your work. This project is designed to support your research experience, enable us to meet new/other students, and assist in building confidence to talk about our research and the contribution(s) it makes. You can decide between you whether the session will be online or in person at the University and how long it will last.

You have until June 30th to complete the application survey.

If you are a PGR, do think about taking part in this. It will most certainly help to improve your skills in communicating your research, in a safe, supportive environment

For more information and details on how to take part, please see the document below.
