Course Description: 

The aim of this short webinar is to introduce new postgraduate research students to the Researcher Academy and the many ways it can help to empower and support you in your research journey. 

The session will focus on the training and development opportunities relevant to postgraduate researchers in the Faculty of Social Sciences.  

The session (delivered via MS Teams) will provide you with the opportunity to "meet" key Researcher Academy colleagues who support the Faculty, begin to assess your immediate training and development needs, learn how to book on to upcoming training sessions and ask any questions you might have about the opportunities and support available to you.

As a postgraduate researcher you can also benefit from specialist support from The Careers and Employability Service who will be offering a short induction session to follow the instance on 21st October. For more information and to book your place please click here
