CAMBRIDGE PHD CLINIC: TIME MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP, OR HOW TO BUILD A GOOD LIFE- 11th Jun ’18, 12-2pm

Criminology Department, Sidgwick Site, B3

TIME MANAGEMENT IS ULTIMATELY RELATED TO THE BIG QUESTION: “HOW DO I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE?” This means that learning to manage your time better has the potential of you becoming more satisfied with your life.
Sounds good, right? Our PhD Clinic will be about about time management.
We will have Polly Brown from the University Counselling Service come and lead the workshop, and below is our summary of what we learned from it. We hope you find some of it useful!

Grab your notebook/a pen and paper, and start taking some steps towards better time management!

Places are allocated on a first come first served basis, so register soon to avoid disappointment:

Dome Evening Cafeteria during Ramadan Observance

From Monday 14th May, evening Cafeteria services will be offering additional dishes suitable for those students who may be observing Ramadan within College.  All items will be available to take away, there are options for Iftar and Suhoor and bags of Dates and Almonds to purchase at the till point. Normal Dome pricing and timings apply and we invite those not observing Ramadan to also try the dishes.

 As usual there are no Cafeteria evening services on Formal Hall nights and Saturdays, those wishing to come through Lunch or Brunch services and use the takeaway option for Iftar and Suhoor provisions are welcome to do so as there will be additional items available.

Please check the menus distributed by the MCR  or the Dome menu board, we hope this will help everyone plan their food choices during this busy term and Ramadan. Can I ask you to bear in mind that this is the first time the College and Catering Teams have provided an extended offer to help those observing Ramadan, whilst the Teams are enthusiastic to help make a difference the first steps are not always the easiest so your support is appreciated, if you have any constructive feedback regarding the provision please fill out the form so we can make adjustments where appropriate.
