Researcher Academy Induction for Faculty of Science PGRs Webinar
Duration 1 hour
Team Researcher Academy

This online course is run by the Researcher Academy 

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February. 

Target Audience: New postgraduate research students (PGRs) from the Faculty of Science – either MRes, MPhil, PhD students. This session is not applicable to those on taught Masters courses.


Webinar presentation with information about Researcher Academy, with discussions in Webinar chat.

A link to the Webinar will be sent out in joining instructions prior to the start time.


The aim of this session is to help new and relatively new postgraduate research students understand what is available from Researcher Academy to help them during their time as a postgraduate research student. It will introduce them to the range of research, professional and personal development opportunities available and provide an opportunity to network with other research students.

The session will provide:

  • An overview of Researcher Academy and the various funding and development opportunities it coordinates.
  • An overview of Researcher Academy’s Researcher Development Programme of courses that are free of charge to postgraduate students at the University of Nottingham. It will delve deeper into some of the courses that would be particularly useful to researchers in their first year of postgraduate studies; and
  • An opportunity to link up with other new postgraduate research students and share experiences
