The DOS Research Centre incorporates #FCSS, the Friendly and Critical Support Space, a platform that seeks to provide a community of practice for PhD students in an informal setting that can provide social, emotional and intellectual support.
#FCSS is holding its fifth event on 28th November 2019 that will focus on Academic Conferences covering such common questions as:
- Why is attending conference important to my PhD?
- When is the best time to go to conferences?
- How should I select which conferences to attend?
- What kind of funding is available from SBM and beyond?
