Starting your doctorate (e-learning module)

All new doctoral students are required to complete the 'Starting your doctorate' online course. Once registered, you should be able to access this course via Moodle, our Virtual Learning Environment. This is a self-paced course that must be completed within your first two weeks.

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'

As well as these compulsory events, you can also get involved in optional activities run by The SU.

Additional support

Peer mentoring

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.
