STEPS newsletter (Skills Training Essentials for PGR Students)

17 Apr 2007

Issue 9 (April 2007) now online

The 9th issue of STEPS (Skills Training Essentials for PGR Students) is now available. This newsletter seeks to raise the profile of PGR skills training provision across the institution and to enable good practice to be shared across Faculties and Schools.

In the latest issue, you can read about the recent publication of the UKGrad report "Recruiting PhDs: What works", how wikis are being utilised in the Faculty of Life Sciences, how postgraduate research students can get involved with the Biotechnology YES Scheme 2007 or Researchers in Residence Scheme, and the seven secrets of highly successful PhD students.

Read all this and more at:

We would welcome feedback on the content as well as ideas for items for forthcoming issues of STEPS.  The next issue will be out in June 2007.
