Yesterday afternoon we welcomed many of our PhD researchers to a Thesis Forum webinar on the challenges and benefits of studying part-time or at a distance. We had participants from across the UK and all over the world (Toronto, Singapore, Istanbul, Denmark and Israel among others!). We listened to speakers from the schools of Education, Modern Languages and Archaeology & Ancient History as they discussed their own experience of pursuing a PhD while juggling family life, part-time work and living away from Leicester. There was much lively discussion in the Chat section between our distance learners on topics such as accessing resources, communicating with supervisors, and dealing with isolation.
A recording of the session is available here (Leicester login needed)
The Thesis Forum will return in the summer term. If you would like to participate or have suggestions for a topic to discuss, please contact Helen
