Theses at UoNA Part-Time Researcher Finishing workshop is taking place at Leicester university on Thursday 8th February from 9am until 5pm. The deadline for registration is the 5 February.

The day is for Part-Time Research Degree Students, post-Transfer or in their writing up stage and will offer time and space to share and discuss pertinent issues. Three useful training sessions are included, one from our very own Professor Ian Livingstone on Editing and Finishing your Thesis, a Preparing for the Viva session facilitated by Dr Chantal Bielmann from Leicester and post-PhD Pathways careers session. It will also include a Shut Up and Write session after the Editing workshop so students can bring some writing to work on. If you are interested please see the full details and booking page here.
