The University of Wolverhampton subscribes to the Vitae Research Development Framework.
Personal and professional development opportunities for research students are spread throughout the duration of the research degree and are grouped into 6 themed units.
FOR MORE INFORMATION: Please visit the course webpage by clicking on the course titles below.
TO REGISTER: Visit the course webpage and click on the 'book now' button next to your selected date. You will be taken to the workshop's eventbrite page where you can register for your free ticket.
MANAGING YOUR BOOKINGS: You should log into your personal Eventbrite account to manage your bookings. You will receive an automatic reminder email 48 hours in advance of your chosen workshops.
ATTENDING ON TIME: We expect that all research students will arrive on time for workshops and stay for the duration – latecomers are disruptive to the other participants. If you need to arrive a little late or leave a little early please contact the workshop facilitator to ask if this is acceptable.
FAILURE TO ATTEND: We know that things crop up last minute which mean you may not be able to attend a workshop. However it is your responsibility to cancel your booking via Eventbrite. Please note that failure to attend a workshop for which you have booked will result in a £20 fine to your Faculty.
HOW TO CANCEL YOUR TICKET: Just log in to Eventbrite, go to the My Tickets page, and locate your order. Select "Manage Order" to view your order details, and then select "Cancel Order". Eventbrite will send you and the Doctoral College an email confirming the cancelation.
