The First-Year Workshops are a formal requirement of the PGR Development Programme and you are recommended to attend one of these workshops early in your degree.

The Structure of the Workshop

During the workshop participants will work in teams to devise a novel interdisciplinary research project. Each team will write an abstract outlining the need for the project, deliver a persuasive group presentation and take part in a peer review at the end of the workshop. This workshop provides:

  • Opportunities to network with researchers from other disciplines and to learn new approaches towards your research
  • Occasions to communicate your research and ideas with peers
  • Discussions concerning the wider research environment
  • A safe and supportive environment where you can practice the skills and behaviours to enhance your research career
