As a new PGR student there is a lot to find out about. In October, we hosted a week of information sessions and events planned to help to you settle in.  Another week of events is planned for 09-13 March 2020 - watch this space for more details. 

Welcome Reception

Please join us on Wednesday 04 March at 1600-1800 in Elphinstone Hall for an informal reception to welcome you to the PGR School and your studies. 

The Dean of the PGR School, Prof Graeme Nixon, will deliver a welcome address before you will be able to engage with our PGR ‘marketplace’ – information on a range of services and key contacts for the duration of your studies.

A ‘taste of Aberdeen’ will be provided thereafter. This is a great way for you to meet other PGRs, people from across the University and to start learning about the range of services open to you.

Attendance at the PGR welcome reception is mandatory, unless you are studying off-campus or cannot attend any events in person. Register Here

Make sure you explore the Induction Guide, in which you will find all the information you need to get started. if you are studying off-campus or cannot attend in March, this guide will provide you with what you need to know.
