Methodologies, structuring and writing research

Starting from Wednesday 11 November I will be offering fortnightly one-to-one tutorials to provide support in regards to methodologies, structuring and writing research (or anything else that you want to chat about).  These sessions are open to postgraduates at any stage of their research. Hourly slots will be available between 11.00-13.00 on Wednesdays.  There will be a sign up sheet on the notice board in Righton and you can also email me in regards to times available if you can’t get in to Righton.
