Induction Programme for Postgraduate Research Students

Student page

The Graduate School Induction will take place between Monday 26 September and Friday 30 September 2022.

 The Graduate School Induction is an important foundation of your research degree, and all new MPhil/PhD students are encouraged to attend. It’s also a good way to start connecting with other doctoral researchers, and to begin to introduce colleagues who will become familiar faces in no time.

Please sign up to attend the Graduate School 2022/23 induction and induction social:

A longer version of the programme, including session descriptions and the Microsoft Teams links for the sessions will be sent out closer to the time and after you have signed on Eventbrite.

We look forward to ‘seeing’ you there.
