If you missed one of the 2012-13 Graduate School development workshops, or want to refresh your memory, do take a look on NILE at our training site “RES001 Postgraduate Research Training”. You’ll find Powerpoint slides, associated documents and a few videos for many of the workshops we ran this year.
