Research Students Annual Conference
The Research Students' Annual Conference (RSAC) is an important event in the School of Education's calendar. It is organized mainly by students and attended by full-time and part-time research students as well as staff from the School of Education.
It provides an opportunity for Research Students to organize an academic event, and to present their work before a critical yet supportive audience consisting of their peers and staff of the School. The event is a great opportunity for research students to meet and talk about their research work. It is also an opportunity to see how others present their work and learn from their experiences.
The research work presented may be at any stage in its development, from design, to analysis to final results, but is assured of an attentive and sympathetic reception. Presentation of research work in this way is regarded as a key part of research students' development as researchers.
Prof. Peter Hartley of the University of Bradford "Demystifying the viva"
Professor Hartley will talk about common problems that doctoral students’ experience with the viva examination, and suggest strategies for overcoming these. This will include a demonstration of recent software to help students prepare for the viva through a mock version carried out on a computer.
