CCRI: RF1 Workshop

16 November 2022 @ 09:30 - 11:30

The Application for Approval of Research Programme (RF1) is the point at which the university formally approves a candidate’s registration. The RF1 form is submitted 3 months after the date of registration, or 6 months if a student is registered part time. The purpose of the RF1 is to review and approve the content, clarity of aims, governance and feasibility of the proposed research, to confirm the full supervisory team, and to check that a student’s training needs are being properly considered. We will use this workshop to:

Ÿ       discuss how best to approach the RF1

Ÿ       go through the main sections of the RF1 form

Ÿ       explain how it will be assessed

Ÿ       help identify and work through any challenges or concerns, especially around facilities or support for the programme and training opportunities

Prior to the session, attendees should

Ÿ       download the RF1 form from the Research Degrees Blackboard site.  If you have been working on a draft of the RF1 with your supervisors, please bring this with you.

Ÿ       download the CCRI RF1 Guide from the CCRI Blackboard site and read before the session.  Write down any queries or questions you want to ask.

This session is part of the CCRI PGR Rolling Induction series, which is designed to complement the induction events offered by the Doctoral School.

Attendance is limited to CCRI PGR students who joined at October 2022 intake point.  The booking link has been circulated to these students directly. Please email culture-creativity-pgr@shu.ac.uk with any queries.
