During your time at GCU the Graduate School aims to provide opportunities for you to develop your own unique set of skills and expertise, both to assist with your research project but also to provide desirable skills for employment beyond your doctorate. While there are many Researcher Development workshops which will be relevant to you, we would also encourage you to take advantage of all opportunities for seminar participation, poster presentation, conference attendance and other academic citizenship activities.
Our workshop programme is subject to change; this is not an exhaustive list but it indicates the type of workshops taking place. For more detailed information, please contact the Graduate School (firstname.lastname@example.org).
