Part Time Researcher Workshop

Who is it for? Part-Time Research Degree Students

What will it cover? The Part-Time Researcher Workshop is a day long event which gives part-time research students the time and space to share and discuss issues which directly affect their research degree study.

A facilitated discussion on the ethos and problems of part-time research will be tackled throughout the day, with a problem solving session and 2 development workshops, including Structuring your Thesis, making progress and managing your time.
