  • This module provides doctoral candidates with opportunities to develop and enhance their research practice and reflect on their process. The module focuses on self-management, academic and communication skills as well as personal effectiveness and wellbeing.

    The module takes an active, blended learning approach. It employs in-person workshops or live webinars as well as online self-directed sessions with opportunities to demonstrate self-reflection and the practice of new skills. The module is designed to maximise flexibility and enable students to tailor their learning to their own developmental priorities and circumstances (e.g. non-resident or part-time) by allowing students to choose from a variety of sessions and topics provided by Student Learning Development, Student Counselling, Postgraduate Advisory Service and The Library.

    To complete the module students must undertake 12 topics from 3 themed areas: Self-Management and Self-Care Skills, Interpersonal and Leadership Skills and Academic Skills.
