We are delighted that we have been able to modify the University of Northampton’s Annual Research Conference in 2020 and deliver it online. The Conference includes much of the usual format, although we’ve taken the decision to postpone the ‘Bake your Research’ competition until we are back face-to-face on campus.

If you’d like to give the Research Poster Competition a go this year, do get in touch with Melanie.Petch@northampton.ac.uk. It’s a great opportunity to meet other PGRs and to gain valuable feedback on your work. Please see the Entry Guidelines for more inspiration and if you’re tempted, fill in the Entry Form.
The Research Poster Competition is available for everyone to view, so do drop by and see for yourselves the exciting research going on at Waterside.
Alongside the poster competition, we’ll also be announcing the winners of the Images of Research Competition we launched late last year. We have two very impressive winners this year, so do join us as we celebrate their successes too.
The university runs a development programme for supervisors who are new to research degree supervision, co-ordinated by Professor Ian Livingstone. It is a validated university postgraduate course and it is delivered as two modules – Workshops and Observation. It is a requirement of our research degree regulations that everyone who is new to supervision takes the first module – the workshops. The second module is optional but if you complete both you are awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Degree Supervision which you can count as one completion when putting together supervisory teams. Even if you have previously supervised research students, there may be some elements of the programme that you would find useful.
In 2019/20 the workshops will be delivered on:
Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September 2019 at the University of Northampton’s Waterside Campus.
You will need to attend on all three days of the programme.
There will also be a delivery of the programme in July 2020, probably on Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th. Read the rest of this entry
