From UoB to UBC- a U21 fellowship blog

From Birmingham to BC

2 Comments

This blog will form a record of my Universitas 21  staff fellowship visit to the University of British Columbia  in May-June 2014. While I’m there Ill be researching personal and professional development for postgraduate researchers, including the Graduate Pathways to Success programme and academic writing support. I’ll also be attempting to not get lost in downtown Vancouver (much).

While I’ll be writing a formal report after the fellowship, I’ll be using this blog to record day to day thoughts, observations and reflections, and maybe even share a few photographs. If you’ve got suggestions for things I should see or do in Vancouver, let me know!

  1. Hi Erika,

    I was lucky enough to go to UBC for the first U21 Student Summit last year, it is amazing! Whilst I was there, I was given a brief opportunity to see some of the writing support materials they have available, it looked like there is lots of brilliant practice going on. Hope you have a fantastic (and productive) time.

    All the best,

    Ruth
