General info:

If you’re fresh into the PhD, this course is there to help you getting started with writing your proposal. In four interactive sessions we touch on different aspects relevant to formulating your research problem, translating it to research questions and thinking about your research approach. You will also meet with other participants in several peer consultation sessions to jointly discuss and reflect on your progress and provide each other with feedback. A coach will be present at these sessions to provide support from their expertise as social scientist.

This course targets recently started PhD candidates in the Social/Environmental Sciences working on their research proposal. It contributes to the process of proposal writing during the start of the PhD project. It supports writing a proposal to convey your ideas coherently. Assignments require you to work on your own project proposal.
