Hi All. Some information I received on a University summer school in the Social Sciences below, in case it’s of interest to any of you. This is ‘save the
date’ info – the full programme hasn’t been released yet:
“Save the Date | Scottish Graduate School of Social Science 1st
Annual Summer School, June 2012
The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGS) is delighted to
announce its first annual Summer School to be held at the University of
Edinburgh on 18-20 June 2012.
This exciting event is aimed at postgraduates in Scotland who are studying
any discipline within social science. Events will include
discipline-specific training, masterclasses and workshops, led by experts in
the field. This advanced training will appear alongside other practical
activities based around transferable skills, knowledge exchange and
specialised IT packages, specifically relevant to your needs. Each day will
culminate in a plenary session, bringing together social science experts
from within and out with Scotland.
On-course students pursuing doctoral study in social science programmes at
SGS member institutions are entitled to free attendance. Eligible students
may also receive help with travel costs and accommodation.
In order for us to gauge demand and allocate sufficient places, please
register early interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your
name, university and programme of study.”
