Coaching and Drop-in Opportunities
Domain: A1 Knowledge base

The Doctoral Academy is a base for several one-to-one or small group activities, designed to offer targeted learning support and guidance for research progress or career development.

Career Appointments
One-to-one opportunities are available to speak to a Careers Adviser on career guidance, options after graduation and support during the application stage. Come for a drop-in appointment on the first Monday of every month between June – September, 14:00 – 16:00 at the Doctoral Academy.

Recognition for PGRs who teach
PGRs who teach during their degree may be eligible to apply for Advance HE (formerly Higher Education Academy) Associate Fellowship status. If you would like feedback on your application for Associate Fellow status, attend one
of our coaching sessions.

Coaching and Mentoring Practice
If you are interested in coaching or mentoring and how to do it, book a place on our interactive ‘Mentoring and Coaching’ workshop, which will also include opportunities for peer-coaching within the session. Coaching practice is also integrated with our ‘Progressing into Leadership’ programme.

Data Clinics
The Doctoral Academy runs a drop-in data clinic once a week where you can seek support for statistical and data analysis queries. If you are unsure how to apply your data, then bring it along to an expert.
