New PGR Conversational Group to start 9 Feb

Published: 18 January 2017

Doctoral researchers are invited to join a new conversational group, starting 9 February.

This new initiative, run by Enabling Services, and supported by the Doctoral College, will bring together the same group of doctoral researchers each week to discuss issues important to them.

Taking place at Highfield Campus, the group will meet each Thursday from 9 February – 16 March, 2017.

Aline Giordano, Doctoral College Manager, said:

‘Come and share your thoughts, your personal and interpersonal experience as a doctoral researcher, or just come and listen to your peers do exactly that and then reflect together.

‘We know that studying for a PhD can be tough and sometimes you might need to step away from it and reconnect with others in a more humane way. The conversation group is an intimate group that aims to enable doctoral researchers to make meaningful connections with each other in a safe environment’.

The PGR Conversation Group is being launched as a direct outcome of the PGR Wellbeing Project. It is hoped that conversational groups will be created on other campuses in the future.
