Thesis forum 2013/14 round up

This academic year saw the thesis forum return for three sessions.

The Probation Review
Eric Akobeng (Economics), Graham Aldred (Archaeology & Ancient History) and Suzi Shimwell (English) shared their experiences of passing the probation review.
Presenting the PhD
Rahma Al Foori (Media & Communication), Dr Hamid Mani (Leicester Diabetes Centre), Yupei Zhao (Media & Communication) and Matthew Adamson (Maths) shared experiences of presenting at conferences and dealing with the peer review process.
Reflecting on the PhD
Dr Thomas Tagoe (Cell Physiology) and Dr Barbara Cooke (English) shared their experiences of completing a PhD.

If you missed the events you can watch recordings here (Leicester IT account required).
You will also find the videos from our 2012/13 sessions.

We are very grateful for the contributions of all our speakers this year. Their honest reflections on the process of doing the PhD have been a great benefit to current doctoral students.

The Thesis Forum will return in the new academic year 2014/15. If you would like to speak or have a suggestion for a topic, please contact Helen. The forum is intended as a friendly and welcoming space where doctoral researchers from all disciplines and all stages of the PhD can come together and share their experiences over a cup of coffee.
