New development week to welcome research students
18 January 2019
A series of events to welcome new postgraduate research students to our university will take place next month as the Graduate School launches its first student development week.
Taking place from Monday 4 to Wednesday 6 February at City Campus, a host of new Graduate School students across the range of our research degrees will be welcomed into the university’s research community, with informative sessions ranging from ethics to training and careers and the Postgraduate Research Student Society.
On Wednesday 6 February, Scott Fleming, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs) and Professor of Sport and Leisure Studies at Bishop Grosseteste University, will deliver a lecture which is open to all research students and members of staff of the university, entitled ‘(Some) reasons to be cautious of (some) research’.
Professor Fleming will share his experiences of conducting research in the social sciences, in particular within sport and exercise sciences. The session takes place from 9.30 – 10.30am in the Rose Bowl room 437. Students can book via MyHub and members of staff can book by emailing the Graduate School.
The Graduate School Development Week aims to give new research students a comprehensive grounding in the skills they need to be able to successfully progress and complete their degrees to the best of their abilities.
