Starting your doctorate (e-learning module)

Doctoral welcome reception
This will take place on Wednesday 26 October 2022 17:00 - 18:30. More information will be announced soon.
SU 'Fresher's Week'
Your Department is included in the Doctoral Peer Mentoring Scheme and you will be assigned a Peer Mentor to welcome you to your doctorate. Your Peer Mentor will email you to arrange a meeting with you in your first or second week of commencing your studies. We would encourage you to make the most of this meeting as it is a useful way to ask any questions you may have in an informal environment.
