Description
Who said writing (or reading) needs to be a solitary experience? Our Shut up & Work sessions aim to help you work more productively in a supportive environment. You come along, set your target for the day and work until you achieve your target. Each session starts at 9:30 and finishes at 16:00 and has coffee breaks to allow you to recharge and network with other postgraduate researchers without feeling guilty. Other Shut up & Work sessions are scheduled to take place on: 17 May, 31 May, 14 July, 21 July, 2 August and 18 August, so make sure you save these dates in your diary.
