Sample text

Check notice boards and the doors of lecturers’ offices for posters and make sure that you ask visiting speakers about conferences at which they intend to speak. • Ask your supervisor or course convenor about academic mailing lists. Are there lists that would be relevant to you? You need only be on two or three to find out most of what is going on in your area. Once you are on one list you will find that you receive information from a variety of study groups. • Be selective. It is worth attending several conferences during your course just for the experience of being part of an academic occasion and to boost your list of contacts, but it can be expensive to travel to a conference and pay your conference fee, so try to find the conferences that are most relevant to you.

As such, your comments really will be valued. Queries that you have and points that you make will have an impact upon the finished product. This is a further example of how postgraduate work differs from the undergraduate experience. You are now an academic amongst colleagues and your experience and expertise will be respected. If you find speakers fascinating, find out where next you might hear them speak. Is there a conference at which they will be giving a paper? Do they run lecture courses that you might be able to attend?

Perhaps you have tried an approach that did not work (better now than in your final dissertation or thesis), been unaware of facts that are relevant (you have time to get to grips with them) or overlooked some vital piece of research (you cannot know everything). No problem will be insoluble and the tutor is there to help you to move forward. • If you are unclear about how the tutorial will run (how long will it be? Will you be asked to read your work? ), try to find out in advance rather than worrying about it.
