A 5 ECTS Credit Module for PhD Students, run by Student Learning Development, Student Counselling, Postgraduate Advisory Service and The Library.

THIS MODULE WILL RUN IN SEMESTER 2, REGISTRATION IS NOT YET OPEN FOR 2021-2022

This module provides doctoral candidates with opportunities to develop and enhance their research practice and reflect on their process. The module focuses on self-management, academic and communication skills as well as personal effectiveness and wellbeing.

The module takes an active, blended learning approach. It employs in-person workshops or live webinars as well as online self-directed sessions with opportunities to demonstrate self-reflection and the practice of new skills. The module is designed to maximise flexibility and enable students to tailor their learning to their own developmental priorities and circumstances (e.g. non-resident or part-time) by allowing students to choose from a variety of sessions and topics provided by Student Learning Development, Student Counselling, Postgraduate Advisory Service and The Library.

To complete the module students must undertake 12 topics from 3 themed areas: Self-Management and Self-Care Skills, Interpersonal and Leadership Skills and Academic Skills.
