Free two day retreat for ASSC HDR students!

If you are an international student studying a Higher Degree by research within ASSC College you can join the 2018 HDR retreat for free! 

The retreat is a two-day HDR development retreat open to HDRs from all campuses and at any stage of candidature. There will be workshops from academics on various candidature- and career-related topics. Examples of last year’s presentations:

  • Demystifying the PhD Process & Policies
  • How to write your journal article in no-time flat
  • Communicating research for different audiences
  • Finding your academic voice  
  • How, when, where and why to make the most of conferences: being strategic and strategies for success  

There will also be workshops where you will present for 5 minutes on your PhD topic. It does not matter if you are in the early stages of your candidature or towards the end. We understand that many people are nervous about presenting. The point of this short presentation is to take the pressure off future presentations that you will be required to do (e.g. School end of year colloquia, confirmation of candidature etc.) by allowing you to practice in a supportive environment.

The retreat is free and includes accommodation, meals and transport. Places are limited, so register soon to secure your place.
