Graduate School Induction

The Graduate School Induction for new postgraduate research students will take place from Monday 23 September to Wednesday 25 September 2019. Most of the sessions will be located in the Whitehead Building. 

This induction programme has been designed to introduce you to the facilities, staff and other postgraduate researchers in the College. As it is an integral foundation of your postgraduate research training, all new students are expected to attend. Students who missed the October 2018 or January 2019 induction are also welcome to attend.
