The aim of the 5 ECTS course TFL 600 is to help PhD students write successful projects applications. This is done by following the life cycle of a project over 5 days with of a combination of lectures with practical exercises. The exercises allow students to reflect on common challenges.

During the course the students are working on a full proposal, continuously improving it, and finally (hopefully) submitting it to an appropriate research program. The project applications are raging from being about funding future PhD students and post-doc positions, or to provide funding for research equipment.

Course leaders are Dr. Gareth Loudon, Principal Lecturer at the Cardiff School of Art and Design, Cardiff Metropolitan University and Director of the Centre for Creativity Ltd, and Dean Frank Reichert of the Faculty of Engineering & Science.

The course is held in beautiful surroundings at the Metochi Study Center on the Greek island of Lesbos, and have made its own course blog: http://tfl600metochi.blogspot.no/

The course will probably repeat next year, open for phd-candidates from all faculties.
