The Graduate Research School offers a range of workshops open to all higher degree research candidates. Working in collaboration with Schools, Institutes and other units, we also advertise targeted training opportunities and seminars as part of our workshops program.
The workshops are targeted to meet your needs for support at different stages of your candidature. It is a good idea to talk to your supervisor about which workshops are best suited to your current aims and needs. You may also consider attending some workshops more than once at different stages of your candidature.
The workshops calendar is updated regularly so please revisit this page to find out about upcoming training and development opportunities. For more information, contact the Graduate Research School at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations will open approximately 30 days prior to the scheduled workshop date.
