Upcoming Events for PGRs, Researchers and Lecturers from the RGS!!
With the start of a new academic year looming, it's the perfect time to start populating your calendar with useful (and interesting!) webinars and events organised by the RGS. There's something for everyone, from Postgraduate Researchers, to those involved in University teaching.
Postgraduate Insights Webinars
The RGS have developed a programme of free ‘postgraduate insights’ webinars that offer insight into different aspects of PhD life, as well as providing useful skills and tools for once the PhD has been completed. The webinars, which begin in early October, are co-organised with the RGS' Postgraduate Forum.
