"Many of our research students enjoy the videos for doctoral
students produced by Angel Productions. These videos offer
explanations and sound advice on many aspects of doctoral study. The
relatable storylines walk students through what they can expect in
the course of their research degree."
- Dr Jason Wickham
University of Leicester
"We use these as part of a package of online training ... which
allows our part-time and off-campus students much better access. I
also think it's important for students to be able to access training
as and when they need it, and this is a way of allowing that. One
of the things I really like is the way the videos use actors
and scenarios: it's very easy to watch and they get a lot of points
across. ... You can use the videos in chunks as part of face-to-face
teaching: I use the 'Good Supervision' video this way and it works
- Professor Carrie Paechter,
Dean of the Graduate
School, Goldsmiths, University of London
Videos for doctoral students
Our videos for universities have been made to support and develop the skills
of doctoral students, with partner institutions including Birkbeck,
University of London and the Open University.
They are used by a wide cross section of UK universities (about 80 at the
last count) and by leading institutions in Singapore, Australia and New
Zealand. For a single, one-off payment, your institution can buy
licences which permit you to
give your students and staff permanent, unlimited access to the videos on DVD or
via your secure intranet. (You can also let your applicants see the videos so
long as you have a secure 'applicant portal' or similar area).
