Doctoral Welcome Team

The Doctoral College Welcome Team, made up of current students, is here to make sure you feel welcome and supported in the first few months of your doctoral studies. As well as organising welcome events, they can also help you find relevant facilities, support services and anything else you might need.

It's worth taking a look at their Arrivals Guide. It's packed with useful advice and info, regardless of when you arrive.

Cake in the Commons

If you are on campus, one of the Team will be at our regular Cake in the Commons event for doctoral students on Friday mornings between 10.30 and 11.30 in 10W 5.01, so do come along to chat to them and get to know your community.

Every month we have a themed 'Cake' highlighting the range of support services you can tap into as a doctoral student. Watch out for our weekly Doctoral Digest newsletter for more information.


Our weekly blogs gives you top tips and things you may find interesting. It may be vaguely exciting too.
