Supporting PGR Mental Health & Wellbeing - webinar for supervisors and staff who work with PGR students
This webinar was recently delivered by Dr Amy Moore, Head of Doctoral Student Development, Prof Sarah Byford, Associate Dean IoPPN, and Hannah Bell, Mental Health Disability Advisor. It covers key challenges and concerns that PGR students face, and shares guidance for supervisors and staff who work with PGR students on how to address these concerns, offer support, and signpost to internal and external resources.
The collated slidedeck with embedded recordings can be downloaded here.
A guidance document has been put together for everyone who is involved in setting up, conducting, participating, and managing the online oral examinations for research degrees. This guidance document can be found here .
King’s College London recognises the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on PGR students. Students are expected to adapt their research activities to mitigate, as far as possible, the disruptions caused by Covid-19 restrictions. Nevertheless, the impact of disruptions on the research may merit explanation in the thesis. Examiners should consider the student’s Covid-19 impact statement in relation to the scope and volume of the research student’s work whilst always upholding the academic requirements for a research degree award.
