OII Summer Doctoral Programme

Doctoral Programme 2006
Oxford (UK) – 15-29 July

ooh – now this looks like something my PhD could benefit from….

"…the Programme will bring together students from around the world to study with leading academics in the field of Internet Studies and to share and discuss their research. The Programme is designed both to stretch the thinking of all students on a range of issues central to the work of the Institute through seminars and lectures and to provide valuable advice and support for students’ own research. Its aim is to enhance the quality and significance of students’ thesis research and to establish a peer network of excellent young researchers."

oh oh, "young researchers"…now I wonder if they’re talking about the age of the person, or the stage in their research career?
At UK1200 it’s not particularly affordable for PhD students…plus an airfare from Australia …. however, as I generally spend July in Europe, perhaps it’s worth considering….the value of studying cross discipline, globally and at Oxford is really rather appealing!

Applications close 20th Feb, 2006
