Replacement Learning Events
Domain: A1 Knowledge base

The Doctoral Academy is working hard to find alternates to support PGR students during the Covid-19 lock-down.

This a one stop list of Replacement Learning Events that are now available.

We are in communication with many of our presenters about setting up alternative remote learning opportunities. Some via Webinars on set dates and others online via a link sent out after bookings. The list and links below will be updated frequently when we have replacements for our popular sessions or we gain access to other sessions you can book onto.

Where available the original session descriptions have been updated with a selection of external learning resources related to the subject that you may find useful. For more information on identifying and accessing online learning resources, click here

As we don’t currently have physical space for research students across campus/disciplines to connect, we have set up some social communities to keep the PGR community connected. These include weekly Twitter Chats, MS Teams, and the Doctoral Academy blog with a range of advice and tips.
