FASS506M Designing, Undertaking and Surviving Doctoral Research - Cohort 1
This short module is offered in two cohorts, one in Michaelmas Term and the other in Lent Term - you should register for either Cohort 1 or Cohort 2, not both.
Aims and objectives
This short module is addressed to new research students. It offers a general introduction to PhD study in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The module provides an opportunity for you to think through the process of doing a PhD, from start to finish, how best to organise it, what problems may arise and how to deal with these. The emphasis of the module is on sharing experiences and expectations. To achieve this, a PhD student in their third or final year or who has already submitted will be invited to share their experiences.
As part of this short module, you will have the opportunity to discuss some of the general questions which all research must confront but also to think about your own research ideas and proposals in terms of these questions.
