'Have Your Say' Postgraduate Research Student Forum
Fri 21 April 2017, 13:30 – 16:00 BST
As part of OPD’s ongoing activities to support postgraduate research students, there will be an opportunity to ‘Have Your Say’ on various issues and to pro-actively engage in personal, professional and career development activity.
Participants will discuss themes relevant to postgraduate researchers in small groups and to put questions/suggestions to Professor Tim Newman the Vice-Principal for Research, Knowledge Exchange and Wider Impact.
It will be a great opportunity to meet other postgraduate researchers from across the university and exchange ideas.
Themes for discussion will be decided on the day by participants but may cover topics such as:
- Current challenges facing postgraduate researchers
- Skills training
- Postgraduate Research Experience
- Employability options
Outcomes from the event will be raised at the University’s Research Degrees Sub-committee.
The event will be facilitated by Dr Emma Compton-Daw, Academic Development Lead (Research) at the University of Strathclyde and previously Co-Chair of the UK Research Staff Association (UKRSA).
