(PGT – Online) Getting Started with Your Studies

  • Friday 22 January 2016 at 12:30 – 13:30

Starting a Masters programme can be an exciting but stressful time. You will have to fit a lot of challenging work around your other commitments. This online, interactive workshop will be based on participant responses to the question:

What’s the one thing do you want to know about starting your studies but were too afraid to ask?

Depending on responses, the workshop may cover:

  • Differences between undergraduate and postgraduate learning environment
  • Academic expectations
  • Getting the most out of your course

Participants are encouraged to ask questions and raise issues they would like to discuss during the workshop.

As a masters student, you need to be critical… but how? And what exactly does it mean?  This quick, interactive online workshop will give you some starter ideas on how to take a more critical approach to thinking generally for your masters.

Students are encouraged to ask questions and voice opinions during the workshop.  Students are asked to think about what ‘being critical’ means to them.
