Hello to all the new PhD students joining us at Glasgow University this year!!
This workshop is organised by the Research, Strategy and Innovation Office.
Are you in the College of Social Sciences?
Do you want to get the new academic year off to a good start?
Do you have an idea for a publication/chapter?
Do you have the necessary data collected and analysed?
Do you have the necessary literature ready?
Are you willing to commit yourself for a morning?
With each academic year comes a new group of incoming post graduates students, both taught and research based students that are new to the Glasgow scene. The SRC and the Gilchrist Postgraduate Club have been busy putting together a wide range of activities for these new students to enjoy as they settle in to their new accommodation, new course and for some. new city.
All of you will remember what it is like to start a PhD; the initial stress and worry, the doubt and fear, the emotional and overwhelming feeling of ‘can I do this?’. The SRC PG Buddy Scheme hopes to help 1st year PhD students by giving them the support and experience seasoned PhD students have to offer. Just think of a time during your own first year, when you felt stressed or overwhelmed but didn't want to talk to your supervisor or didn't know where to go. Buddies will offer an alternative avenue for support, to compliment the support systems already in place and offered by the SRC and the University.
