The aim of this Student Handbook is to lead you – whether you are research student or research supervisor – through the PhD: from choosing your project to examination and all stages in between and indeed after. The MRes year timetable is included in the Student handbook.
Hot Topic Seminars
Internal ‘Hot Topics’ sessions take place on Tuesday at 2.30pm. Hot topics are for first year PhD programme and post-graduate students. For programme information contact Karen Laurence.
MRL Student Committee
The MRL Student Committee organises various events for students, including the Annual Postgraduate Symposium and a student journal club as well as social events such as cake days, Christmas celebrations, and others – all of which help create an enjoyable environment in which to be a student as well as providing organisers with valuable transferable skills including event management, effective communication and teamwork. Members of the Student Committee also represent the views of students on various MRL committees, including the MRL Management, Graduate Education, IT and General Purposes Committees, to ensure student opinion is taken into account in management decisions.
Nick Heeley currently leads the MRL Student Committee. Please get in touch with him if you would like to get involved, suggest events, etc.
MRL PhD Student Symposium
Students at the MRL are also expected to participate in the annual MRL Student Symposium, which is organized entirely by the PhD students, and the IMS Away Day, and to present either a poster or give a short talk, depending on their stage of research. MRes students will present a poster of their Easter term research project at the annual MRL Student Symposium. Other students will either present a poster or give a short oral presentation, depending on their stage of research.
