The opportunity to teach can be a very valuable experience for doctoral students, allowing them to develop additional skills for a wide range of careers. Support for Postgraduate Researchers who Teach outlines the requirements of Schools and the University for selecting and supporting postgraduate teachers and all other pro-rata teaching staff. Prior to starting such teaching, all students must have a casual contract in place.
The PGR fieldwork fund is available as a potential resource for School of Management PhD students who are unable to obtain relevant funding from their funding body or who are self-financing. Students may apply for an award of up to a maximum of £500.
The award may be used toward the following:
- student travel and/or accommodation costs necessary for the research
- incentive payments or token gifts to research participants
- materials, supplies or other services essential to the research.
This is a rolling application so there is no deadline for applications to be received.
Please note this fund is NOT for use toward transcription or research assistance costs.
The role of the School President is to make representations on behalf of the students within their School to the University. The broad aim of the School President system is to improve communications and co-operation between students and staff, for the mutual benefit of both. The School President acts as a fundamental link between the student sabbatical officers of the Students' Association and the class representatives.
Jeanne Adam was elected student School President in spring 2020 and will hold office until spring 2021. Contact your School President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please find information on the School’s Postgraduate Research Staff-Student Liaison Committee (PGRSSLC) in the Handbook for PGRs.
