Description:

AU’s Faculty of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce that we have entered into a special agreement with Memorial University (MUN) to offer co-hosted workshops and PD opportunities to both MUN and AU graduate students.

What have you always wanted to know about graduate studies, but were afraid to ask? Do you have questions about the un-written rules in
academia? Inspired, by @ASecretMenu Twitter account, this interactive, student-driven workshop will dismantle some myths of university life, explain Canadian academic culture, and help build a better understanding of how university systems work.

Would you like to know how committees evaluate proposals and grants? Or perhaps, effective ways to foster email communication? Do you need an extension, or help writing essays? Let us know and we’ll build your questions into our workshop. This session will feature time for Q & A and a roundtable discussion to chat, and learn from each other. You can email your questions to the hosts, Julie Bowering (jbowering@mun.ca) or Dr. Meghan Burchell (mburchell@mun.ca). All submissions will be anonymous.
