Open forum discussion
GRASP hosts regular open forum discussion panels for students and staff in the Graduate School of Life Sciences to voice their opinions and provide us with feedback on different aspects related to academic and professional development. These discussion events enable GRASP to be aware of the main issues and to highlight them to the Graduate School of Life Sciences.
Our most recent discussion event was PhD Funding: Snakes and Ladders, where the points of discussion included the pros and cons of different PhD funding schemes, opinions about the DTP compulsory Professional Internship Placement, a preliminary survey of interest in a PhD-Postdoc buddy mentoring system, etc.
GRASP takes part in organising lectures and research skills training events together with GSLS and other training organisers within the University. Some of our notable past events included:
- Keys to Successfully Publishing and Portraying Your Research – Selina Hawkins (The Science Media Centre) and Peter Stern (Editor at Science)
- The Power of Procrastination - Jorge Cham (PhD Comics)
For further enquiries about our events, please contact the Ents Officers.
