This face to face 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.
Target Audience: This course is ideal for doctoral researchers who have recently started or are in the early stages of their research but all doctoral researchers are welcome.
The aims of this 2 hour course are to explore the nature and expectations of doctoral study through the lens of an escape room-style game.
This course will:
What does an escape room have in common with a doctorate? Come along and find out!
Feedback from previous participants:
“This in my opinion is a fantastic hands-on and fun way to help students really understand and come to terms with the roller coaster journey that they may experience during their PhD study. Personally, the escape room scenario has played out repeatedly during my PhD study. But I was quite prepared for this, thanks to the course I had attended.”
“This was a really useful course we also had fun!”
Interactive workshop, group work, reflective time and whole group discussion.
Please note: the nature of this workshop involves close collaboration and team work to problem solve.

Importance of booking commitment
When booking on to a Researcher Academy short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing email@example.com. This will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.
It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. The Researcher Academy maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Researcher Academy courses and will affect considerations for Researcher Academy funded opportunities.
