Where Did The Time Go? Time Management for Postgraduates

 An opportunity to think about how to get time to work for you.

To identify the main difficulties that people experience and link them to possible emotional components.  How our fears get in the way and how behaviours such as procrastination and perfectionism can influence effective time management.

This is an interactive workshop, where people are invited to understand their own particular difficulties, to find out about useful strategies and think about how to put these and some new tools into practice.

Improving the Relationship with your Supervisor Workshop

In this interactive workshop we will look at what can contribute to making the relationship between a postgraduate student and their supervisor a successful one.

We will cover the common difficulties that arise in this particular relationship by looking at: how to manage expectations; how to develop awareness of personal relationship styles; and how to develop assertive communication skills.

Come and join us if you want an opportunity to increase your understanding of your own difficulties and think about new ways of managing them through sharing experiences and insights with other postgraduate students.
