“Grounded in real-life practical issues” – Project Planning for PhDs

PhD students at the University of Liverpool logged on to part one of our Introduction to Project Planning webinar series, Establishing Foundations. The group gave the training an overall feedback rating of 4.5 out of 5 (5 being Excellent).

The Doctoral College group agreed 100% that they:

  • Would recommend this session to a colleague
  • Feel more confident in using the tools & techniques learned      
  • Will be able to apply this learning in their current work/research/ study

We asked what they would say to a colleague interested in this session:

  • “Sign up, it is so useful”
  • “Useful way of simplifying project to avoid problems”
  • “Very informative”
  • “Very enthusiastic leader with some great ideas relevant for a range of research projects”
  • “Useful tools and engaging”
  • “An informative, helpful and concise session run in a friendly and engaging way”
  • “Useful insight to project planning grounded in real-life practical issues, not only the academic considerations – reassuring in that sense”

Other post-training comments included:

  • “Did the session in my first year and came back again as I wanted to go through again with the support further along the line”
  • “Very useful to have the perspective and experience of someone who has done their PhD later in their career”
