Hi, my name is Keith Nottle, I’m a PhD candidate here with the school of American and Canadian studies. It’s a school that teaches a number of subjects, my subject is a political history. In term of using the facilities at the University of Nottingham, I found of the use of graduate school very good for my own study. For example, in term of building confidence, I‘ve been on the presentation and further presentation skills courses. Also, I have learnt more about PhD process, a course on PhD supervision process helped me bed into studies, and also time management courses help me in managing my own studies outside of the University environment. In term of my own research going abroad, I found going on a course about interviewing a list of subjects and accessing archives of most use. The University of Nottingham has developed e-journals and e-books which can be accessed off of campus and this has been quite useful because it means that for the books I use heavily, you can now accessed them outside of the University and library opening hours. In term of my own teaching, it is also been good for students who use these facilities as well.
