The thesis forum is a friendly and welcoming meeting in the Library (and online) for research postgraduates to share tips on the practice of researching and writing a PhD thesis. Whether you're in Arts or Sciences, a UK or International student, waiting for your probation review or close to submission, you all have one aim in common: to survive the process of getting your PhD and emerge from it successful and unscathed!

If you are off-campus you can still join in- we broadcast our thesis forum as a webinar, and you simply need to login on the day. You will be able to hear the speakers and contribute to the discussion. We also record our meetings so you can watch at a time that suits you.
You can find our previous sessions here.               
During the 2013/14 academic year we'll be running sessions in November, January, March and June.
We like to hear short presentations of up to 15 minutes on your experiences of research so far. Here are some suggestions for topics, but we would like to hear presentations on anything that is important to the life of a postgraduate researcher-

• What you wish you'd known at the start!
• Presenting your work (conferences, seminars, public talks)
• Planning conferences and events as a PhD student
• Passing the probation review (formerly APG review)
• Finishing the thesis
• Surviving the viva
• Balancing research with everyday life
• Coping with research setbacks
From first years to early career researchers, we would like to hear from you!

Please send your expressions of interest to Helen by 31st October 2013.
