Passing the Probation Review

Are you a PGR student with a probation review coming up? The next Thesis Forum will give you advice on how to be successful with your review. There will be presentations and discussion with students and academic staff on how the process works.

We will meet in the Library Seminar Room, 2pm-4pm, Tuesday 17 November. Tea and coffee will be provided.

No booking is required, just turn up on the day.

If you can't make it in person, the talks will be broadcast live as a webinar.

Spring/summer 2013

We currently have sessions planned for March, May and June. For full details please visit our events diary.

If you would like to get involved with future thesis forums, please get in touch. The forum is intended as a friendly and welcoming space where doctoral researchers from all disciplines and all stages of the PhD can come together and share their experiences.

We welcome short, informal presentations (10-15 minutes) on the experience of researching and writing your PhD thesis. Suggested topics could include: getting started, supervisor issues, tackling the APG, studying away from home, staying motivated, setbacks, writing habits, juggling teaching...any topic you feel is important to doctoral researchers, we'd love to hear about it!

We also welcome contributions from postdoctoral researchers and early career academics. To get involved email Helen
