'Ways of Working'

Aims of the Programme


  • To provide opportunities for postgraduate researchers in the School of Performing and Digital Arts to work together in a shared experience of research training, thus promoting greater collegiality and sense of community;
  • To provide high-quality training that complements the College’s Researcher Development Programme but is focused more on arts and humanities disciplines;
  • To encourage the sharing of research insights and methodologies, to promote interdisciplinary enquiry, and to enhance students’ employability;
  • To ensure more efficient delivery of postgraduate research training across Departments.


All PhD students are warmly invited to attend these sessions: they are designed for students across the School and no booking is necessary. If any preparatory work is needed, you will be emailed with plenty of notice and there is no formal assessment on this course.

 As a PhD student, you are required to complete a specified amount of training each year (please see your departmental Student Handbook for details). Please note that attendance at each of the Ways of Working sessions below counts as half a day’s training and should be recorded as such in your Training Log for submission at Annual Review.

 For queries about all this programme, please contact Dr Chris Megson .For queries about individual sessions, please contact the relevant tutor (via their College email).
