For the spring we focus on starting, maintaining and finishing our PhD; with new arrivals, people moving into their second years, and also people into the final few months of submitting their thesis and preparing for their Vivas. So we have support for you throughout the stages of your PhD.
Remember we also have sessions specifically for colleagues working in their second (or third) language (run by RD colleagues who know exactly what this is like), sessions for those doing their PhD part time and also evening & weekend sessions if it makes it easier for you attend them around other plans.
We are continuing with our very popular Research Methodologies, Writing Support, Wellbeing & Productivity sessions, so if you didn't get a place first (or second) time around, then get booking.
PhD in a Second Language
A PhD is challenging. Doing it in another language makes it more so. Even if your first language is English but you're unfamiliar with British Academia, there will be something here to support you.
The series is designed and run by a Warwick PhD Alumni, Lecturer and RD facilitator who still occasionally struggles to find the correct word.
The series is designed to support you with many aspects of the process. We cover writing and speaking, reading and presenting and navigating GB culture.
