Hi all,

please see below for two Otago PhD student courses. I'm told these are very 
valuable for students. 

In particular, I note that the second workshop focuses on the mid PhD time 
when many student struggle to remain enthused and confident. I'm away this is 
a very difficult time for students so its interesting tot see the Uni runs 
specific courses on it.
