How our Residencies work
Intense Residencies are a very rich opportunity to work alongside peers under the facilitation of experienced researchers as tutors. Intense Residencies provide an ideal means to present to an audience of your peers and tutors, and to receive constructive feedback on your ideas and methodologies in undertaking your thesis or post-doctoral research project. Students will have the opportunity to test their research method and instruments, and to receive feedback on how to improve it. Intense Residencies allow participants to develop their research, writing and presentation skills and to explore a range of different research approaches.
Intense Residencies typically take 4 to 5 days, from Friday to Monday and have from 10 to 30 participants. They will be usually run by two or more (depending on the group size) experienced researchers with a background in quantitative and qualitative research methods. On top of this, residencies also feature a number of thematic sessions that are given by invited experts, and they provide a suitable forum to present and discuss your research. All participants will be provided with both one-on-one and group sessions to maximise individual feedback and guidance.
Intense Residencies are suitable for both, grouping participants at similar points in their journey, as well as bringing together starting and advanced participants. Grouping participants allows for foster point specific learning. Bringing together starting and advanced participants on the other hand allows the novice participant to learn from the senior participants; while the senior participants is benefitting from learning geared towards research communication and to present and defend results, which all are crucial for passing the final viva.
Attendance fee of the Intense Residencies depends on the number of participants and location, with costs starting at €1,500 for a minimum of 6 participants for residencies that are held within the UK. Room hire and catering are additional, and will vary based on location and facilities required. Costs of travel, accommodation and meals are at each participant’s expense.
As an alternative to residencies we also run three-days hands-on workshops that are designed to focus on research execution and thesis crafting. Learn more about our workshops here.
