    Are these workshops available to distance and online HDR’s? Its awkward to publicise these events with students to then find that they cannot access them.

      Hi John, thanks for your comment. The workshops will be filmed and available for online viewing in future. The Library is also working on a new Literature Review program that will be available through the Study Skills website. As GRASP is a new program, we’re still developing our support to students but we will endeavour to enable access to online and remote students.

    The “Purpose & structure of your candidacy proposal” workshop are all booked out, and I was on the wait list and hoping to go. Will they be run again? Or alternatively was a video recorded that I can watch retrospectively?

    Cheers Rob

      Thanks for your comments Rob. In answer to your questions the session will be repeated in mid-2018 and yes, the session was recorded and will be available as an iLecture next week.

      The link to the video and information on how to access handouts will be posted on the library blog next week.
