Manchester Gradschool Reviews of 2017
Learning all about working with the different characters in my group was invaluable experience. I got practice working in new and exiciting ways which will help a great deal in the future. I found the sessions on generating creative thinking particularly useful for improving my problem solving.
I loved the creative and interesting way the various tasks were introduced, I love the games and team challenges. It was thought provoking as well as fun.
Our faciliator was very accommodating, friendly, and encouraging.
As a scientist I thought that creative thinking wasn't really my thing, I was surprised by how creative I was on this course. I especially liked the techniques for creative thinking.
The course was well organised with funny and useful activities. The trainers were friendly and helpful.
It was really fun, thought provoking, and interactive. I loved the challenge of it. It was so refreshing to have break from my research, and to think about something else. I learned a lot about myself.
The Gradschool is a fantastic programme to stimulate PhD students adn help the raise awareness abou themselves and how to work in teams.
