The training was fantastic. I will take many ideas away to improve my own research and also to think more about what I’d like to research in future
I really enjoyed the research training and the overview it provided, followed by narrowing down to our own experiences and projects
Great training which covered a lot of information and made me think about how I can go about my own research
