Welcome events for new doctoral students
Get to know your colleagues and staff, and find out about services available to you as a doctoral student at our social and community events.
Doctoral Welcome Team
This programme of events has been organised by your Doctoral Welcome Team. We are a team of doctoral students here to make sure you feel welcome and supported in the first few months of your doctoral studies. We aim to help create a positive doctoral community experience from the outset, by organising events and helping you find relevant facilities, support services and anything else you might need. Look out for us on campus in our red hoodies.
Read our blog to get to know the team and for hints and tips on settling in to doctoral life.
Current doctoral students will lead the tours, taking you around key buildings such as the 10 West Graduate Commons and study space, The SU Bath (Students' Union) and the Medical Centre. It's a great chance to get some top tips on places to eat, the best coffee on campus and doctoral life in general.
