Course content

All our postgraduate researchers attend the Graduate Research Forum, which meets weekly during the autumn and spring terms. It provides training in practical research skills, including guidance on research design, fieldwork and archive techniques, data storage and management, writing skills, proposal-writing, CV presentation, and presentation skills. These forums also enable you to present and discuss your work in progress. If you are a PhD/MPhil student, you will also attend regular research seminars held in the Department.
