Our research skills programme provides additional training opportunities for postgraduate students, to support their dissertation.
Some of these training sessions will be run internally, by our academic staff, and others will be provided by external resources, including:
Most sessions take place on Wednesday afternoons.
The sessions scheduled in semester one focus on writing skills and securing your dissertation topic.
During semester two and the dissertation period (April-August), the focus turns to qualitative and quantitative skills, managing your research project and supporting each other through the final stages of your dissertation.
Attendance is recorded and your supervisors may request you attend particular skill training sessions to support your dissertation in semester 2.
Most sessions can be booked via the Geosciences Masters Programmes Learn Page, through the Research Skills folder. You will be sent an email when sign-up sheets are available.
