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