How is the Graduate School Supporting Students Impacted by Covid-19?

Professional Skills Development Opportunities – Masters and Doctoral Students

Following College advice, all face to face teaching in the Graduate School is now cancelled. All affected students will not be charged a cancellation fee and will be given priority booking once face-to-face courses are re-scheduled.

Staff within the School are working hard to increase the offer of remote teaching so that you will be able to continue to engage with professional development opportunities wherever you are in the world.  New workshops are also in development, designed to support you with coping in uncertain times.

Programme webpages are being updated regularly as new remote workshops become available.

1-2-1 Professional Skills Tuition, for Master’s and Doctoral Students

Tutors within the School are also available for remote 1-2-1 professional skills tuition.   If you have a specific development need, please get in touch with Laura Lane 

Research Computing Skills – for Master’s and Doctoral Students

Students looking for additional support or to use the College’s central computing resource should contact Dr Katerina Michalickova, Senior Teaching Fellow - Research Computing Skills to gain a general introduction regarding what is available to them in this area. Alternatively, for questions relating to specific problems or software, they should contact the Research Computing Service directly.

Students, who require software engineering support should contact the Research Computing Service Research Software Engineers and/or join the Research Software Community at Imperial. Questions and queries from the Research Software Community are often answered quickly via their slack channel.
