Event description

Description

This session is aimed at students at the beginning of their PhD, with a lighthearted and positive approach to build your confidence and increase your understanding of what lies ahead. The session will provide general pointers on how you might manage your academic study, the pitfalls you might face (and how to avoid them!) and offer ideas on how to develop time management strategies.

Key academic elements of PhD study will also be covered, including what to consider when conducting fieldwork, analysing data and structuring the chapters of your thesis. Discussion will also cover your relationship with your supervisors, how you might approach writing up, what you can expect in the Viva and how it links to the thesis. The aim is to keep discussion informal, and from the perspective of what you as a PhD student can expect and how you might approach the challenges successfully.

  • Understand what to expect during your studies
  • Develop general approaches to meet the challenges ahead
  • Prepare for the academic requirements of your PhD
  • Find guidance on how each element of your PhD will contribute your thesis and Viva

Session Recording

Please note all attendees of this workshop will receive a follow up email, containing an online recording of the session, and further resources linked to the subject.

Attendance

Once you have booked onto a workshop, you are expected to attend, if you find that you are not able to meet your commitment to attend, you must ensure that you cancel your booking by contacting the Doctoral School at the earliest possible opportunity so that someone else can be offered the chance to attend. Should you fail to attend a workshop without providing a valid reason your supervisor and Head of Department will be notified.

If we find we have to cancel a workshop at short notice (for example, as a result of tutor illness or extreme weather) we will contact you as soon as possible by email using the email address you submitted at booking.

Cancellation of Attendance

The Researcher Development Programme is very popular and for many workshops we have waiting lists of students wishing to attend. Hence, if you book a place on an event you are expected to attend. If you realise that your attendance is going to be impossible you can cancel your booking by emailing the Doctoral School doctoralschool@lincoln.ac.uk .

Please do so as early as possible (and at least 48 hours in advance) so that we can offer your place to another student.
