Graduate School

Postgraduate Welcome Programme

Our Welcome Presentations are an opportunity for postgraduate researchers to hear about how the Graduate School can support you with training and development opportunities, placements and even help with small-scale funding to support your researcher development.

Welcome presentations are delivered by senior staff from the Graduate School and introduce you to the additional facilities and support available to postgraduates. There will also be opportunities to hear from us through you school, faculty or Doctoral Training Programme (DTP).

Coffee and Cake events are an opportunity to look around our Graduate Centres and meet other postgraduate students. There will be free refreshments and cakes for all postgraduates. Of course you can also pop into the Graduate Centres at any time (use your University card to unlock the door).

How you can access our expertise
Every month, you will receive the Graduate School newsletter straight to your University email account - look out for the first email once you have registered! We'll also send you information about key events and opportunities throughout the year. You can engage with us on social media and through our website.
