I’m taking part in an entrepreneurial scheme at my university, and I’m interested in learning more about the challenges that postgraduate students face around the research environment at their university, and how we can better solve them.
My goal is to have a conversation - via phone or Skype - with 100 PG students.
I want to hear about your experiences with the university’s research environment and the training they provide. Specifically, what you find a problem. How you tackle these problems. What you love. What you hate.
If you’re willing to give me 10-15 minutes of your time, it would mean a lot to me. And you’ll be a big part of addressing the challenges you’re facing.
Plus, I’m happy to offer help with any academic issues you’re tackling or complete surveys in return. =) *
If you’re interested, just reply to this message, and I’ll send you instructions for setting up a call.
Thanks so much.
* I’m a PhD student with plenty of experience in dealing with funding, heavy workloads, and managing supervisor relationships.
...or just paranoid?
