Are you doing your research degree part-time?

If so, you may be interested in attending a free Vitae Part-Time Researcher day on Friday February 1st, organised by and held at the University of Birmingham in Edgbaston. Supported by Simone Apel from the University of Northampton, the day will feature facilitated discussion on the ethos and processes of studying for a part-time research degree, two skills workshops, the opportunity to network with other part-time students and hear the experiences of part-time doctoral graduates. Question and answer sessions will provide the perfect arena for problem and solution dialogue and you will take away some immediate plans for action.

This workshop, designed by Vitae, has received excellent feedback. Comments on the March 2011 workshop at the University of Nottingham include, “I highly recommend Vitae and strongly encourage other part-time researchers to make the best of this (free) opportunity. Don’t miss this!”
