Professional development

The Doctoral School is excited to offer you another jam-packed programme of workshops to assist you in your studies and potential future career. The Doctoral Symposium is also being organised on the 28 February 2020. Invitations to attend the symposium will be open at a later date.

Applications for the semester two workshops will be open on a first-come first-served basis, through the eSIMS portal online, from Thursday 23rd January to Wednesday 5th February. No late applications will be accepted.

It is of utmost importance to register only if you are sure you are able to attend the workshops on the day and time advertised. The Doctoral School has a cancellation policy whereby failure to attend more than three workshops without a valid reason for doing so will lead to not being able to attend other doctoral school workshops in future. Valid reasons for late cancellation or for missing a workshop involve illness (this needs to be corroborated with a doctor’s certificate) and unplanned leave of absence (this needs to be corroborated with documentation).

Some workshops also require that participants present some work prior to the date of the workshop. Care should be taken to follow deadlines and instructions given in the Professional Development programme.

Each workshop will run if there is a sufficient number of applicants.
