Our Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme (PRDP) is a lively and challenging programme of workshops, events and seminars designed to support you through your doctoral journey. It is for you, with advice from your supervisors and the Doctoral College, to devise a training and support package that suits your needs. The 2017-18 programme, organised thematically to help you explore and navigate, can be viewed here.
To browse workshops in date order and to book a place, log in to PhD Manager and click Calendar on the left-hand menu. From there you can filter by event type (right-hand menu) and book a place by selecting a workshop and clicking Respond. The workshop programme for 2018-19 will be developed during summer 2018.
The Online Library of Research Masterclasses
The Doctoral College's Online Library of Research Masterclasses is a collection of video recordings of lectures and workshops from leading academics in a range of disciplines across the university.
Delivered during 2017-18, the masterclass series took 'Methodology' as its theme. Presenters reflected on this and their experiences, and illustrated sessions with examples from their own research and publications.
PhD Student Hub
Every month or so we have PhD Student Hub, a student-led initiative which invites students to get together over lunch to chat about research and research life. You can find out more on our blog and sign up (optional) on PhD Manager (filter by 'Social'). Students at any stage of doctoral study are welcome to come along.
