The atmosphere from last year's school was very positive with plenty of interaction and engagement from participants. Sample feedback on the PG Summer School includes the following quote:

“It helped to provide perspective and validate one’s own experience of being a PhD student in terms of approach, requirements and pitfalls and provided useful suggestions for organising and improving performance”.
