This half-day classroom based MSD Skills training course is suitable for first year DPhil students preparing for their transfer of status.
This course has pre-course material. Booking confirmation and course reminder emails will provide you with the link to 'My Resources' section of CoSY to access the material before the course starts.
- To inform students of transfer of status formalities and University regulations.
- To assist students in transfer of status preparations.
- To allow students to hear the opinions of transfer of status assessors and previous students.
This course will take place as a workshop, which will involve presentations and informal discussions, with free rein for students to ask questions throughout.
Assessors can 'red flag' problems that have occurred in the past, but they can also discuss what makes for an excellent candidate and successful transfer viva. There will be chance for informal discussions with transfer assessors and a member of the Graduate Studies Office.
This course is complemented by our Writing a Transfer Report course.
