Getting it done

Inspired by the challenges of a PhD's life

You are responsible for your development, how you manage your research and how you manage your career. But others have been there before you. To support the Dynamic Development Model and put you at the front of your own learning and development, Michele Underwood built a team of 4 facilitators all currently undertaking their PhD at Warwick.

In 2018 the Getting Real Training team was launched as a separate programme to the RD. Its separate identity was to support four PGRs in their development of a training programme, to be designed and delivered by them, and supported in their training & facilitation styles by Michele. For 2019 we have decided to incorporate the team within the full RD programme but continue to identify its uniqueness by emphasising the key message of Getting it Done.

The team co-deliver workshops over the year ( and occasionally support Michele with others) and deliver the 2 day New Years Resolution Getting it done! 2020 School and the 3 Day Getting it done! Summer School.

In addition they offer a (nearly) monthly drop in. The PhD Network: Ask a PhD means you can chat to someone who is doing their PhD at Warwick, understands the highs and lows of research, and can network with other PhDs. Bring a coffee with you and catch up with new and old friends.
