What are the support needs of postgraduate researchers?
How can we improve the resilience and wellbeing of PhD students at UoL?
Would peer support groups be useful, what format should they take?
As part of the upcoming LDC Researcher development week, we are embarking on a fact-finding mission to inform our approach for the next academic year.
Come participate in an informal group discussion on the challenges involved in doing a PhD.
This is a real opportunity for you to use your experience to improve the wellbeing of current and future postgraduate students.
All PhD students and early career researchers welcome!
