Target Audience: PGR Students

Self Enrol onto the Myplace Class:
These offline resources are available on My Place which means you can access them multiple times, just-in-time and whenever and wherever you want to help make your PhD journey easier. 
Over many years’ experience delivering to PGRs across Europe, Fistral has developed provision aimed at 1st year PhDs to help start the challenging early years of a doctoral degree with confidence and supported by a toolbox of tools and techniques. Our Kick-Off Your PhD provision is separated into two themes:
  1. 'Managing Yourself'; and
  2. 'Managing Your Project'
Centred on a programme of training videos and accompanying participant workbook, the tools and techniques provided can really make a difference in the early stages of your PhD - as well as providing skills, tools and techniques for longer term research roles. Topics include settings goals, managing expectations, using your time effectively, avoiding procrastination, managing supervision relationships and a lot more: and all contextualised for PhDs.

Should you have any questions about the content of the videos or application of your learning feel free to email Dr Fraser Robertson (fraser@fistraltraining.com) or Dr Rosie Doyle (rosie@fistraltraining.com) directly. Fraser leads on the Project Management elements and Rosie leads on the interpersonal topics.

Delivered By: Fistral Training


A live Zoom webinar scheduled with Fistral and the University on Fri 23rd April 2021 09:30-11:30 will provide more information on the programme, how it is structures, how it can be used to help your PhD and answer any questions you might have.
