A research degree is a special kind of long-term project, which needs new strategies for setting milestones, planning and managing your time. This session will address a range of very common challenges which research candidates face, and provide numerous practical techniques which you can use to have greater clarity about the path ahead, to adapt to the unexpected and to make realistic and sustainable progress towards your goals. There will be plenty of opportunities for participants to share experiences. Research students, supervisors and others are all warmly welcome.
