academic writing for thesis and paper

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.

PhD interview

I've been invited for an interview at Bristol university following my application for a Maths PhD there. I'm not too sure what to expect, the questions I'll be asked, and the questions I should ask. I'm meeting the admissions tutor, and the supervisor I proposed in my application and a few other potential supervisors. Anyone who has gone through this experience have any advice?

Does anyone have any advice for how to manage this or can point me towards some reading?
