If you are a PhD or MPHIL student at UON but have not yet applied for Transfer, please note that there are 3 compulsory elements to your doctorate which you need to satisfy before you can progress through Transfer.
- Induction is the first. You must have attended a PGR Induction in either October or March.
- and 3. The other compulsory elements comprise two online courses, Becoming an Ethical Researcher and Research Integrity (UK) Second Edition – Core course. These courses are fully online, you can access them in your own time, working at your own pace.
It makes sense to pass these courses before you consider applying for Transfer and it is best to start soon after your Induction. So click on the links above and please make sure to read the instructions for access. If you have any questions please contact Simone Apel in the Graduate School.
The process is slightly different for our Professional Doctorate students. Your induction runs at the start of your facilitated modules and the compulsory online courses are embedded into the assessment of the facilitated modules for DProfPrac students, with DBA students completing the courses at the beginning of the thesis module.
The two compulsory courses are accompanied by a number of other optional online courses in research methods and literature review. So do take a look and see what is available for you – access is via Gateway (under the menu ‘Online courses’).
…from everyone in the Graduate School. We look forward to helping and supporting our research degree students and supervisors in 2022.
The Graduate School’s Images of Research (IoR) competition is back! The Call for Images is now open, so, if you are a researcher (staff or research student) at the University of Northampton, why not take part? Pick up your camera or paintbrush and produce a unique image which captures the essence of your research, or an element of your research, in a visual, artistic or photographic way. Top that off with a snappy title and 150 word summary and that is all you need to do to participate. See the IoR 2021-22 Rules and Guidelines for how to apply.
This year’s IoR will, again, be a double competition, where viewers can vote for their top three favourites and an expert judge will also choose their top three. Entries (see below) must be emailed to Simone Apel by February 28th 2022.Read the rest of this entry
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.

I’ve been having real difficulty concentrating whilst working at home. I find it hard to start tasks, my eyes are sore, a 5-day week feels daunting and I feel anxious when I don’t complete the tasks I planned to do. I miss going to work!
At the Graduate School Drop-In today, we talked to a PhD student about concentration and productivity. We came up with a few practical ideas that I thought I’d share with you: Read the rest of this entry
This blog post is intended to provide specific information for PGRs and research degree supervisors about the impact of COVID-19. We will update it as advice changes and we will add new FAQs when it seems necessary.
Q: Where can I find out updates from the University about COVID-19 (‘Coronavirus’)?
A: The University of Northampton’s Situation Updates page is the primary source of information and updates for colleagues and researchers at the University of Northampton: https://www.northampton.ac.uk/about-us/situation-updates/
