Receive Education and Health Sciences Structured PhD Portfolio Module Benefits 

Among the many benefits listed above there is a key benefit specifically for Education and Health Science (EHS) structured PhD students at the University of Limerick which can be seen in the Portfolio Module (ES8014), a core module for EHS structured PhD students.  

As part of the EHS Structured PhD, the Core Portfolio Module (ES8014), structured PhD students are required to detail 10 research activities and record attendance of ≥60 workshop hours to successfully complete the module. Therefore, when joining the HRI PG/PD Hub Network and attending the relevant academic workshops, aimed at upskilling, and supporting PhD students throughout the academic year, you are building your workshop hours. For those individuals interested in joining the HRI PG/PD Hub Network committee, this opportunity and engagement can fulfil one of your research activities for the Core Portfolio Module (ES8014).
