About this Event

Nottingham-Birmingham Part-Time Researcher Programme

Background about the 2019/2020 Programme

The Nottingham-Birmingham Part-Time Researcher Programme involves a series of workshops throughout the academic year specifically designed for part-time research students. The training and development events aim to give part-time research students the opportunity to explore issues that affect their research study. They include facilitated training and discussion on the nature of researching part-time, and some of the problems faced by part-time researchers are addressed during the sessions. The workshops are a collaborative venture between the University of Nottingham and the University of Birmingham and, as such, attendees will have the opportunity to meet and network with fellow part-timers from each university and share experiences and solutions to problems.

There are three workshops throughout the year, in December, February and June. The workshops are open to research postgraduates from the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham only.

June workshop details

The final workshop of the 2019/2020 programme will be held on Wednesday 17th June. As well as the opportunity for you to meet other part-time research students in the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham, we have a series of skills sessions on the workshop agenda, on the topics of 'Editing academic writing', 'Preparing for the viva' and 'A researcher's profile'. A detailed agenda will be emailed to you nearer the time.

Refreshments and registration will be from 09:45 and we will start promptly at 10:00. The workshop will close at 3:45pm.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please email libraryresearchskills@contacts.bham.ac.uk if you have any specific dietary requirements, although 50% vegetarian catering is usually ordered automatically.
