If you study part-time or as a distance learning student, or even if you have just been off campus doing fieldwork or placements for part of the year you may have been unable to attend much of the research training available in the faculty.
Thesis Clinic is a concentrated selection of bite-size researcher development opportunities drawn from the core researcher development programme, held in a single afternoon for PGRs who have been unable to attend our regular weekly workshops. This event has two streams running simultaneously throughout the day. Choose the one that you feel is the most appropriate for you at your current stage of your PhD. These workshops are offered throughout the year to on-site students but have been adapted to suit the timings of this event. In other words, part-time and distance PGRs will receive similar training workshops as their on-site colleagues.
Starters: Join this stream if you are within the first 36 months of your PhD. The workshops will focus on developing skills useful for progressing through the initial stages of your programme.
