Managing your PhD and your supervisor 25 Nov 2021 10am to 11.15am

This online session is hosted by Dr Mary Cryan (Deputy Director of IGS).  The focus of the session is to help explain the PhD Annual Review process, the supervisor-student relationship and obligations and to share ways you can address problems and if they arise and where you can seek help. 

The session is aimed mainly at PhD students in their 1st year of research (for CDT NLP that would be year 2 of the program), however, it may be useful for some students later in the program so all are welcome.
