Warwick Skills and training

HI there I saw a question about the Warwick Skills Portfolio and it reminded me of an online record of my training I had started to create in my first year. I think it was linked to myadvtange and the Research Student Skills Programme. I remember it took a lot of time to record everything I had been doing in the diffferent areas of development - and now I can't find it!

Printing and submitting the thesis

Hi, I am hoping to submit my thesis in Dec (fingers crossed!). I'm part time and based off campus (in London), so I was wondering if anyone could share their experience of printing the thesis, getting it binded, and then submitted? I thought I'd be able to do all of this on one day, but then realised Warwick print need a full day to get a soft bind. I also haven't used the printer at my department for over 2 years.

Warwick Skills Portfolio Award

Does anyone know anything about the award, how you start it, etc. Seems there is some enrolment you have to do, but it's not obvious how you go about doing it.

Hi there!

Pablo, here. I'm in the final year of my PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at CIM. Currently I'm researching social and political aspects of blockchains / cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin in particular). That takes pretty much most of my time, but when I have some spare time I like to draw, and improve my (fairly poor) programming skills. You can usually find me at my office or at the Wolfson's Research Exchange trying to finish a chapter, a paper, an abstract, or whatnot. You can take a look at my we

PhD viva examiner - how to find one, and approach

Hi, I would like to know if anyone has any tips on finding the 'right' viva examiner? Also, should it be the supervisor or the student who approaches the external examiner to see if they are willing to examine the thesis?
