Ahead of this year’s Midlands Graduate School Student Conference (19 June, University of Leicester), we’ll be holding a Pre-conference Workshop for 1+3 students currently completing a research training Masters programme. This will be an opportunity, ahead of the main conference, for MA students to consolidate their research training, share their PhD project plans and pick up tips on starting a PhD. We hope that all Midlands Graduate School MA students will attend the workshop and we’re asking all attendees to give a short (max 10 mins) presentation on their proposed PhD study.
The workshop includes lunch and dinner on 18 June and overnight accommodation in Leicester for those staying on for the main conference.
