Our next open evening will be on Tuesday 15th May 2018 – from 5.30pm to 8pm.
Come along to hear about our postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes, to experience student projects in Virtual Reality and ambisonic and surroud sound, and to chat with course tutors.
Interested in learning a little more about what it takes to succeed in post-graduate research? Then have a look at How to Fail Your Research Degree.
Developed by Daisy Abbott, Research Developer and Lecturer at the School of Simulation and Visualisation, this light-hearted game encourages a reflective engagement with the various academic skills and activities necessary to undertake post-graduate research and the risks and pitfalls that can affect a research degree.
Released in 2017, it is particularly suitable for taught master’s and MRes students and is currently being used world wide. It can be equally useful for students in the first year of a PhD, or even final year undergraduates who are undertaking independent research projects. The game can also be used to (re)familiarise early career researchers to the process of managing a research project, and has been shown to be useful in introducing the terminology of research to novice researchers or those with English as an additional language.
