Professional development

We are pleased to announce that the semester two calendar for the Doctoral School's Professional Development Programme is now available.

Applications will be open on a first-come first-served basis, through the eSIMS portal, from                      5 to 14 February 2021. No late applications will be accepted. There is no limit to the number of workshops you can select but once an application is confirmed there will be no possibility to add or change your selection.

It is important that you 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 the 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 on the workshop description.

You are encouraged to access the online programme for the time-table and a PDF copy of the catalogue for more information about the workshops.

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