Bookings for our events will now be done through Eventbrite. All reminders and updates about your booking will be sent via Eventbrite so please ensure that you read these messages. It is recommended that you use the ‘Add to calendar’ function as a reminder of your booking. If you need to cancel or amend your booking do this via ‘My Tickets’ on the site.

Waiting list

If you are on the waiting list for a place and one becomes available you will receive an email from Eventbrite. You will be given 2 days to respond, if you have not responded within that time you will be taken off the list and the invitation will pass to the next person. Preference will be given to NorthWest DTC PhD students; this will be determined by email address, so please use your official address.


We have had an increasing problem with non-attendance. As a result anyone who does not attend and has not cancelled their place before the course starts will not be permitted to attend any further methods@manchester for that academic year.
