The RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum represents the Postgraduate Community, and we are interested in hearing from and showcasing the range of voices and experiences that makes up our postgraduate community. It is important these are recognised, both the positive, so we can celebrate with you, and the negative, which can be cathartic, as well as helping each of us realise we are not alone, and these experiences are universal and not personal failings.
We host the Postgrad Life blog and the Top Ten Tips series and are seeking contributions from Masters and PhD students. We are keen to hear about all aspects of PGR Life either as a blog post or as a set of ten tips, for example:
- How are you navigating pandemic life whilst researching?
- Managing your research, how do you balance research, side projects and life?
- Wellbeing, how does your research and wellbeing mix and what do you find helpful to support wellbeing?
- Methodology and methods, why your particular approach?
- The ethics process, what does ethics look like to you?
- Fieldwork, how do you navigate this as a physical, social or mixed methods postgrad researcher?
- Conferences, what have your experiences been like?
Blog contributions are around 750-1500 words. Our blog coordinator, Andy Harrod, will support you through the process. If you are interested in writing a blog or a top ten tips, please email Andy. We’d love to hear from you.
