Completing a Learning Agreement & the PhD Progression Points

Prof Yiu Lam, Director of Postgraduate Research

Thursday 9th February 2017, 14:00 - 15:00

As a postgraduate researcher at Salford, you will need to complete a Learning Agreement in collaboration with your supervisor during the first few months of your programme. This session outlines the aims of a Learning Agreement and where it fits within the broader PhD lifecycle and evaluation processes at Salford. It will look at the Learning Agreement form in detail and provide some pointers on how to complete your own.

This session will also explain the full Postgraduate student lifecycle from the first stage Interim Assessment through to the Internal Evaluation, as well as the ongoing monitoring of doctoral research through the Self-Evaluation document and Annual Progress Report. It will explain the benefits and ethos of this framework, the responsibilities of both the student and supervisor, and the documents which need to be provided at each stage of the lifecycle.
