Seven days on-line tutor-led discussion of the main challenges for UK doctoral students - particularly those working off-campus for much of their time and probably at an early stage of their degree.

It will be assumed that specialist academic advice and guidance are being provided by supervisory teams at the university. Most other aspects of the doctoral process can be raised on this course.

Course fee £95 (no vat).

£15 of this will go to a charity to help students struggling with stress and other mental health issues e.g.https://www.studentminds.org.uk
