This is an optional live session for MSD DPhil students, complementing the online self-directed course ‘Writing a transfer report’ in Canvas. This two-part course is designed for DPhil students who are preparing to write their transfer report (usually second or third term of the first year).


Live sessions will be used to answer questions about the online course, discuss your transfer report message, and share writing challenges and solutions.

The online course covers planning, writing, and editing your transfer report. By the end of the course (with or without a live session), you will

  • Have found your transfer story – while meeting transfer aims
  • Have developed an initial outline of your transfer report for discussion with your supervisor
  • Feel ready to write each section of your report
  • Be confident in revising your own writing for clarity, simplicity, and completeness and in applying feedback
