The University has a duty of care to all staff and students who wish to travel overseas and needs to be assured that those travelling have fully considered the risks and put appropriate precautions into place.
Many members of our Essex postgraduate research student community are also carers. This could mean that you provide regular unpaid care to children, a family member or a close friend with an illness or health condition. There are also those who may juggle several care responsibilities.
Presenting a thesis in the format of a thesis as a series of papers is available in some disciplines for some research candidates. Students should speak to their department to see if this is available and appropriate for them.
