The aim of the workshop
The proposal is arguably the most important part of any aspiring doctoral student's application. It is through the proposal that the core elements of the proposed research are communicated. The proposal serves to communicate applicant's quality of thinking, and to attract the attention of potential supervisors. But what are the key elements of a good proposal? What are some typical mistakes people make? This online workshop focuses the research question, the research design, and the link between the two. Participants can share their ideas and questions, can learn how proposals are assessed, and can reflect on how well their own proposals meet the stated criteria.
