Overview of Our Online PhD & Postgrad Workshops

Updated: Jul 25

During the past year I delivered online wellbeing in research and academic writing workshops to many PhDs and Postgraduates from UK and International Higher Education institutions. It has been a privilege working with researchers in such difficult times.


New Higher Education clients in the UK include Science and Engineering Centres for Doctoral Training from Imperial College London, Royal Holloway (University of London), King’s College London and other universities. I also enjoyed working with Business and Management PhDs from NARTI (Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative), a network of research-led Universities in the North of England and Postgraduates from The Eden Project.


New international clients include The University of New Hampshire in the United States, The National University of Ireland, Galway and in October I will deliver online workshops for PhDs at The University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Since I started Scriptor Cube ltd in 2018 I have engaged 34 UK universities, 1 American University, 1 Irish University, 1 Dutch University, 8 Centres for Doctoral Training, 8 Doctoral Training Partnerships and other HE providers.


For the 2021-2022 semester our main online workshops on offer are:
