Theory to practice made easy

I really like how we continuously jumped from theory to practice such that the theoretical concepts were well understood and were natural to us. (better for keeping them in the long term)

Definitely not death by sugar paper!

Thanks! I was hugely pleasantly surprised. This was much better than the usual death by sugar paper. A highlight was the caveats: accepting that some of this (MBTI) is flawed

The world beyond the lab

For me, the most useful part is going out from the lab and see other options, people, points of view etc

How to be an innovative leader

The session with Mary (Ways of Leading and Working Cultures) was both informative and enjoyable. It stimulated innovative ways of thinking about leadership and introduced several new concepts. Mary was highly enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with! I now realise that I'm a total Apollo in my leadership style!

Networking, learning and growing together

Participating in the various workshops was incredible. It was a wonderful opportunity to network and meet researchers from other departments. The workshops designed for the programme were well structured and in every sense contributed in the development of my overall personality

How to set yourself up for success and feel in control

The 'Research Project Management' module was extremely helpful.

The brilliant part of the course is that strategies are clearly presented and then we are encouraged to apply the strategy directly to our projects. I walked away with a clear idea of how I need to set myself up for success and also I feel more in control over my PhD project, which in turn makes me feel deeply motivated.

Understanding your own strengths

I gained an understanding of my own strengths and weaknesses and how I would use these when working in any institution.

I gained more knowledge from fellow students about the different research areas out there, by interacting with them on the different modules.

I also gained more friends!
