Over two and a half days and with contributions from academic and key administrative staff from the collegiate University, the Seminar provides you with an interactive and participative platform for:

  • exploring priorities during probation
  • reflecting on your teaching, research and administration duties
  • clarifying expectations and opportunities
  • networking with colleagues
  • understanding ‘the bigger picture’
  • asking questions!

All probationary University lecturers are expected to attend the Seminar, which is a core feature of PHEP together with an individual meeting, and you are strongly recommended to do so in the first year of your appointment.

You can book your place online.
