The Graduate School

This course is delivered by the Graduate School

The Graduate School 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.


Please note this is a PILOT COURSE.

Target Audience

Postgraduate researchers at any stage; particularly relevant to those in mid or late stages.
 Research staff welcome too.


Process

Workshop with group work and discussions


Description

Aims of this workshop:

  • Explore procrastination: how and why do we do it; awareness of your vices and how you can use them to increase rather than decrease motivation

  •  Time management techniques to stay on track

  • Tips from recently-graduated doctoral students and academics on beating procrastination, dealing with writer’s block, staying motivated and finishing on time.


Booking Conditions

Latecomer policy

Researchers should plan to arrive prior to the advertised course start time. Except for exceptional reasons, there will be no admittance to a Graduate School or Faculty Training Programme (FTP) course 15 minutes after the advertised course start time.

Importance of booking commitment

When booking on to a Graduate School 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 pg-training@nottingham.ac.uk.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 Graduate School maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Graduate School courses and will affect considerations for Graduate School funded opportunities.
