Event Details

Creating the Seven Secrets of Highly Successful Research Students

Hugh Kearns. 

You know what your research degree student should be doing, but it just doesn’t seem to be happening. Despite your best efforts to set up good habits for your student, it does not work. Why is this, and what can you do to make completing a research degree easier for your students and for you?

This course gives you practical strategies to deal with common problems such as:

  • supervisor/student relations
  • dealing with writer’s block
  • attitude (or lack thereof!) in relation to the research degree – it’s not a Nobel prize
  • getting your student to seek help when they are stuck
  • the student who never has enough time
  • treating the research degree like a job
  • keeping on going when the going gets tough

This workshop is for supervisors of research students at any point in their candidature.
